Change of Venue for Music On The Green Summer Concerts

The free live Music On The Green summer concert series at the Deschutes County fairgrounds in Redmond is soon to get underway, with the first concert on Wednesday, June 30th at 6 pm featuring Olivia Knox – an 18 year old who composes all of her own music and plays the guitar and ukulele.  Upcoming concerts include Heller Highwater on July 14th, Erin Cole-Baker on August 11th, JuJu Eyeball on August 25th, and a performance by Redmond’s own Hokulea Hawaiian Dancers on September 8th.  The concerts are typically held at Sam Johnson Park, but due to occupancy limits and no city permits for park use, they have been moved to the fairgrounds. Organizers say they hope at some point in the season, they can be moved back to the park.

Free Drive-Thru Life Jacket Distribution in Redmond

A drive-thru life jacket distribution event is being held in Redmond this Saturday.  Coastal in Redmond will be handing out 300 life jackets for kids up to 12 years of age in the parking lot of the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center on a first come first served basis until they’re gone.  The life jackets are free, and are intended to promote summer water safety.

Bend Park & Rec Returning to Normalcy

Beginning next Monday, June 21st, Bend Park & Rec returns to drop-in classes and will be removing the advance registration process that was put in place to adhere to state-required capacity limits and restrictions in light of Covid.  A small number of online classes will continue to require registration, but for the most part the rec facilities will be returning to the flexibility of drop-in access and will be able to accommodate more programs and participants.  Juniper Swim & Fitness Center cycling and exercise rooms will also be opening on Monday.

Free Webinar to Help Businesses Recover from Covid

Covd Prompts County Fair to Adjust Animal Competitions

Some good news for Deschutes County fair lovers who look forward to the animal exhibits there every year.  As it turns out, they’re not totally out of the picture this summer – just partially.  The fair won’t be holding their traditional Open Class ADULT Livestock competitions – but they WILL have YOUTH Competitions along with the 4-H and F-F-A animals at the fair which showcase all the fan favorites including cattle, hogs, goats, sheep, chickens, and rabbits.  Fair officials say they eliminated only the ADULT Open Class Competitions this year to provide a bit more space for fairgoers in the barns in light of Covid safety measures involving social distancing.
