Old Fashioned July 4th Festival

Enjoy the holiday with your friends and family at the Bend Park & Recreation District’s Old Fashioned July 4th Festival, brought to you by Zolo. It’s a day filled with old-fashioned fun & games, food and festivities – you won’t want to miss out!

Make a day of it: Begin at 8:00 am in Drake Park with the annual Lion’s Club Pancake Breakfast then cruise to downtown Bend by 9:30 am with your dog, llama, wagon, bicycle or stuffed animal for the popular Bend Park & Recreation District Pet Parade, brought to you by Bend Pend Express. The parade kicks off at 10:00 am sharp and circles through downtown for 1.5 miles.

After the Pet Parade, head back to Drake Park between 11:00 am – 4:00 pm to enjoy the Festival with live music presented by Subaru of Bend, local artisans and delicious food. Don’t forget to cruise through the expanded Kids & Family Area brought to you by the Law Offices of Warren John West where kids of all ages will be entertained with FREE old fashioned fun and games.
