    Overall Experience
    Overall a very solid venue. The Deschutes River runs right next to the venue. Good sound. Very comfortable and clean. Basically a big lawn though sometimes chairs are set up depending on the (read more) artist. Lots of shops, restaurants and drinking establishments within walking distance to the venue. Not much is open after the show as Bend is a pretty sleepy town for late night shenanigans. Good food and drink options inside the venue. They sell (overly sweet) cider for the non gluten folks. Security is generally friendly but can be sticklers for silly bag policies at times.
    Getting There

    Best to walk or ride a bike to the show. If you’re coming from outside of Bend you may want to park in town somewhere and walk to the venue.


    I always walk to I haven’t experienced the parking situation.

    No tailgating. Bend is a pretty pristine town that likes to keep things that way. Lots of options to grab drinks and food before the show. Crosscut Warming Hut, Brown Owl, Immersion Brewing, Crux (read more) Fermentation Project are all good options for a pre show adult beverage.
    Water Policy

    See official listing here. Not hard to fill up your own water bottle inside.

    Bag Policy

    See official listing here.

    Search Policy

    They do a pretty thorough search. They did have lockers/bins for bags that don’t conform to their somewhat silly bag policy.


    I’ve always enjoyed the sound here. Usually not to windy in Bend which is nice.

    Venue Security

    Pretty chill for the most part.

    Venue Concessions

    Lots of food trucks inside. Great corn on the cob from Bigfoot BBQ. Lots of beer tents set up so lines usually go quickly.

    Nearby Lodging

    There are lots of hotels in Bend and a few that are a short walk to the venue. Tons of airbnbs in Bend as well.
