Attendees of the event in Bend’s Old Mill District will experience live music, ski and snowboard competitions, art and artisan food marketplace, and activities for children.
Entries for the 2014 WinterFest Poster Art Contest will be accepted through November 12, 2013. The contest is open to 6-12 grade students in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties. As many as ten finalists will have their art displayed in OnPoint’s Bend Downtown branch, 950 NW Bond St., November 18-23. During that time, members of the community are invited to vote to select one winner whose art will be featured on a 2014 Bend WinterFest poster.

A portion of this year’s Bend WinterFest button sale proceeds will be donated to local nonprofit, Saving Grace—an organization that provides services to those who have experienced domestic violence.
“OnPoint is pleased to continue as title sponsor of Bend WinterFest and offer the public an opportunity to support a nonprofit like Saving Grace through our button sales,” said Rob Stuart, OnPoint’s president and CEO. “It’s a great community event that celebrates the outstanding culture and winter activities that Bend has to offer.”
