Call to Artists: Bend Fall Festival, October 1-2, 2011

Bend Fall Festival

October 1-2

Bend Fall Festival

As summer fades, fall gracefully eases its way onto the scene and provides a gentle landing into winter. A time to harvest and give thanks, to rest from summer’s endless pursuit of sunshine and to prepare for the flurry of winter; fall is the perfect time to give thanks and enjoy a community gathering.

The Bank of the Cascades Bend Fall Festival, presented by The Source Weekly will bring a celebration of all things fall to downtown Bend Oct. 1 and Oct. 2. Fall-themed activities-yodeling anyone?-music, art, and food will thrill attendees of all ages.

Two music stages, the Clear 101.7 fm Mainstage on Oregon Avenue and KPOV Local’s Only Stage in the Wells Fargo parking lot, will provide a mix of local and regional talent such as Supersuckers, Hill Stomp, Leif James and Moon Mountain Ramblers.

Be sure to visit the Carrera Oktoberfest Biergarten located on Oregon Avenue. Enjoy Oktoberfest entertainers with a pint of one of the rare beer selections from Deschutes Brewery released exclusively for the Fall Festival. Don’t miss the festival-wide Hops Happy Hour from 2 pm – 5 pm when all beers are a $1 off. Food vendors, Red Napkin and Spork, will be on hand with gourmet Oktoberfest fare to complete the ultimate Oktoberfest Experience.

The Food Court area located in the Wells Fargo Parking Lot with entrances on Oregon Avenue and Wall Street will offer a delicious selection of food options to satisfy any cravings that occur throughout attendee’s exploration of the Festival. Options range from local favorite Longboard Louie’s to the refreshing new-kid on the block Pho Viet Café and everything in-between.

The Artist Promenade located on Wall Street between Oregon Avenue and Franklin Street, will feature the work of over 100 talented artists specializing in a variety of mediums including jewelry, clothing, photography and sculpture.

Best of Jury winner Reiko Archer’s numo felted scarves are sure to please and are a must-have accessory for the coming winter. The Artist Runway showcase-a new addition to the festival- held on the Clear 101.7 fm Mainstage, will showcase other must-have items from lines such as Jonny Sport, Bella Sisters, Flood Clothing, and Blossom Mertz.

Get Seen at Bend Festivals

As a studio artist, you need time to create. But you also need time to sell. We know that the selling part may be more difficult because your real passion comes from creating fine art—not researching the best fine art shows. Let us help.

Bend, Oregon festivals, sponsored by C3 Events, offers THREE thriving fine art fairs that help fine artists and artisans—like you—get the most out of displaying their work. Located in beautiful Central Oregon, our spring, summer and fall juried art shows really deliver:

  • They bring in a wide variety of people, i.e., our summer and fall art festivals brought more than 50,000 people and 25,000 people respectively over the course of two days.
  • They offer popular live music, tasty food and wine—plus, easy access to fine artists and local artwork.

hullabaloo-booths.jpgBeginning this fall, we plan to offer a new exhibit concept, called “Studio Sale,” which gives fine artists a more refined and exclusive space to show their work. The Studio Sale will also let artists cross-pollinate with other regional artists and college art students for a more rewarding experience.

Don’t wait to apply.
