For the past two decades, the Bend-Redmond Feast of Tabernacles site has delighted Feast-goers with its beautiful, millennial setting. The cities of Bend and Redmond are nestled in the high desert of central Oregon among the spectacular Cascade Mountains. The warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights provide an ideal location for the fall Festivals of God.
There is much to explore in this diverse locale. Spend time among the pine forests, atop the mountain peaks or in the high desert plains. Spend an afternoon at the world-renowned Smith Rock State Park, which features scenic views, deep river canyons and several thousand climbs, along with several miles of hiking and biking trails. Alternatively, you could take an afternoon trip to Crater Lake National Park and experience one of Oregon’s most distinguishing features, just 90 minutes south of Bend.
Outdoor activities include sightseeing, horseback riding, rock climbing, caves to explore, agate and fossil hunting, fishing, hiking and biking trails, canoeing, boating and whitewater rafting. Golfers will appreciate some of the nation’s best courses.
If you would prefer to spend the afternoons in town, the Old Mill district, located on the banks of the Deschutes river—featuring shops, restaurants, and a scenic river walk—is a local favorite. The old downtown area of Bend is home to a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and breweries.
A short distance from Redmond is the western-themed tourist town of Sisters. It is a great place to window shop and pick up souvenirs. The resort village of Sunriver offers shopping, dining, a nature center, indoor sports center and water park. South of Bend is the Smithsonian-affiliated High Desert Museum, where you can come eye-to-eye with birds of prey and join in the family-friendly, hands-on learning available to teach you about the wildlife, habitat and rich history of this unique biome. There are a number of activities planned to encourage and facilitate fellowship and greater spiritual growth.
