The region includes Bend, Sunriver, Sisters, Redmond, La Pine, Prineville, Madras, and Warm Springs, so no matter where you are in the high desert, there is always something for you to do. You may find yourself watching one of today’s hottest bands at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in the Old Mill District one minute, and another you will be walking the streets of Downtown Bend, indulging in samples of Central Oregon’s famous craft beer and contemporary brewery food, or attending the annual fair & rodeo or one of hundreds of other events at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds & EXPO Center.

If you are traveling from out of town for some of Central Oregon’s yearly events, like the Sisters Quilt Show,  the Pacific Amateur Golf Classic, or the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival, we encourage you to take a look at our many places to stay. Or, if your desired event brings you to town for only a day, check out all of our unique restaurants and brewpubs – there is surely something to please everyone!
