Bend Spring Festival Starts Friday |

Bend, Ore. – Celebrating the return of the sun, the renewal of the earth, and the launching of a busy Central Oregon outdoor event season, the free NorthWest Crossing Bend Spring Festival, takes place at Northwest Crossing Friday, April 8th through Sunday April 10th. Friday evening kicks off with the Art and Wine Bop from 5pm to 9pm, featuring a sneak preview of festival fine art, wine sampling, and offerings of live music strategically placed inside the cozy confines of many NorthWest Crossing merchants. Again this year we will add a free concert alongside the Bop, starting at 5:30pm with ¡Chiringa!, followed by Redwood Son at 7:30pm and ending on a highly energetic note starting at 9:15pm with Larry and His Flask on Northwest Crossing Drive.

The festival at large kicks off on Saturday from 11am to 11pm, and again on Sunday from 11am to 5pm. Over 60 artisans, fine artists, global importers and crafters will be present in addition to a street dedicated to resourceful living.
