Winterfest in Bend, OR

Every year, over a long wintry February weekend more than 20,000 people are drawn to the Old Mill in Bend to celebrate the season by attending Oregon Winterfest (OWF). Held over President’s Day holiday weekend, the Oregon Winterfest entrance features artistic pyrotechnics in the form of the Fire Pit & Fire Sculpture event. The Fire Pit & Fire Sculpture event attracts over 20 local, regional and national stature sculptors and blacksmiths. An inclusive event suitable for all audiences, everyone is invited to gather around the fire to talk directly with the artists about their creations and craft.
