Centrally located in the High Desert, Redmond is a community rejuvenated with upscale restaurants, a growing beer scene, ample lodging, vibrant parks and a bustling downtown district.
Through its music events, parades, farmers’ markets, fairs and festivals, Redmond offers visitors a true slice of Americana. Nestled in Redmond’s backyard, Smith Rock State Park is a must-see destination, attracting the world’s top rock climbers (as well as hikers and mountain bikers) to its sheer, umber-colored cliffs. Redmond is also the region’s commercial air hub (Roberts Field, RDM), served by Alaska, Delta, United and American airlines. Strategically located at the hub of the tri-county area, the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center plays host to a wide range of events, including concerts, sporting events, automotive shows, trade shows, weddings, reunions and more. The venue offers spectacular panoramic views of the Cascades, meticulously manicured grounds and more than 100 acres of parking.
