Balloons Over Bend Children's Festival

  • Riverbend Park 799 Southwest Columbia Street Bend, OR, 97702 United States (map)

For more than 30 years, Saving Grace has celebrated healthy families and healthy communities with our Saving Grace’s Children’s Festival. Saving Grace has joined in partnership with Balloons Over Bend to create an exciting family festival that will continue to benefit Saving Grace and our work throughout Central Oregon.  Join us Saturday, July 23rd at Riverbend Park. The festival runs 10 am-4 pm.

This festival promotes a healthy, fun lifestyle for children. Nearly 20 local organizations and businesses are hosting a variety of games and crafts for kids of all ages. This year the festival features the BEA Bike Rodeo, face painting, and educational activities. This is in addition to a premier bounce house area, food and craft vendors. A variety of entertainers will take the stage at Riverbend Park all day long. Saving Grace will be hosting their own booth within the festival focused on healthy relationships.

This is a great way to enjoy a fun filled day as a family. The festival is free, but passes must be purchased to participate in the booth activities and the bounce house area. Passes are $15 per child for the full day (including the bouncy area and kids' fun run). Tickets are available online or in person. A portion of proceeds from the festival will go to help provide 100 percent free services to those in need of help within our community. Saving Grace provides a place free from fear in our emergency shelter, a 24-hour hotline, emergency transportation, safety planning, support groups, children's advocacy, community education and more.
