Foodies Rejoice!!! Celebrate the local flavor of Central Oregon during the region’s largest food festival. The Bite of Bend is a three-day food party on the streets of downtown Bend! Bringing together chefs, bartenders, brewers, food enthusiasts, home cooks, and local purveyors. Last year, the Bite of Bend showcased over 40 food vendors from around the region. New this year — Mixology Week! There will also be the Beer Run 5k through Drake Park and the kiddos will love the Little Hopper Root Beer Fun Run for 3-10yrs.
