The Bend-Redmond area is pleased to host the Feast of Tabernacles again in 2016. Nestled in the pines of Central Oregon, Bend is the hub of the Cascade Mountains vacation area—a truly millennial setting. Warm, sunny days and crisp, cool nights are typical autumn weather during the festival season.

Central Oregon offers a wide range of family-oriented activities. The nationally acclaimed High Desert Museum features impressive indoor natural history exhibits and live outdoor animal programs. Sightseeing opportunities include waterfalls, mountain streams, national forests and state parks. Newberry National Volcanic Monument offers views of interesting features of the area’s volcanic past, including a large lava cave to explore on foot. Crater Lake is within driving distance from the Bend-Redmond area.

Outdoor activities include sightseeing, hiking and biking trails, horseback riding, hayrides, rock climbing, caves to explore, agate and fossil hunting, fishing, canoeing, boating, and whitewater rafting. Golfers will enjoy some of the nation’s best courses with reasonable green fees.

Bend has several shopping centers, including a factory outlet mall and the award-winning Old Mill District, located on the scenic banks of the Deschutes River, featuring shops, restaurants and a scenic walking trail along the banks of the river. The old downtown area of Bend with its wide variety of shops and restaurants offers an enjoyable afternoon activity. Some restaurants near the festival site offer special menu items and discounts for attendees.

The small tourist town of Sisters is a must for window-shopping and souvenirs. The resort village of Sunriver offers shopping, dining, a nature center, an indoor sports center, and a brand new water park.

Services are held in a spacious, well-designed, state-of-the-art facility with plenty of parking, scenic grounds for picnicking and outdoor activities, and an on-site RV area with full hookups. We reserve a row of seating in the front of the auditorium for fragrance-sensitive attendees. A wide variety of nearby off-site housing is available at reasonable rates.

Location of Services: Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center, Middle Sister Conference Room, 3800 SW Airport Way, Redmond (easy to find and conveniently located less than a mile from the Bend-Redmond airport).

First Service: 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 16.

Opening Day Service: 1:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 17

For the Feast in Bend/Redmond this year, we are planning a Family Day Social. 

This year we will fellowship together in a quieter, indoor environment conducive to conversing and mingling with one another. 

How can you contribute?  Bring stuff!

  • Cards or board games you are willing to share
    • Must be Feast and family appropriate inclusive to several players and finish in a relatively short amount of time (no Monopoly).  Folks need to join and leave easily.
  • Puzzles and brain teasers, coloring or drawing books.
  • Crafts such as scarves that you would like to DONATE to others who could use them.  We will have tables set up for items you may take home with you.
  • Small art or craft projects you can teach or engage others in - please contact us and let us know what project you are planning on.

What else do we need?  Volunteers for things like:

  • Face painting
  • Origami
  • Feast card making
  • Meal ticket sales prior to and during the Family Day Social

Write your name and church area on the games/activities you are sharing so we can get them back to you after the day is over!

Suggestions? Questions? Want to volunteer???  Contact the Family Day Coordinator, Bob Arritola or his wife, Laura at 541-474-7823 or email at bob.rtola@gmail.com.

The correct date for family day and the fun show is Wednesday, October 19. Sorry for the error in the original announcement.

Our annual Feast family fun  show has always been a highlight of the Feast. This year it will be held on family day (Wednesday, October 11), beginning at 6:30 p.m. If you wish to participate, please contact Fred Reeves (Fred_Reeves@ucg.org) with a brief description of your musical presentation, skit or whatever you have in mind. An announcement will be made during the Feast regarding the date and time of tryouts.

We now have two pianists to accompany the song service but would like to have one more. That will involve only three or four services to perform that role.

The manager at Comfort Suites recently informed me that she has opened up more rooms for us. Comfort Suites is one of most popular housing properties, and is less than a mile from the Festival site.

Central Oregon is a cornucopia of scenery and activity
