  • The Bridges at Shadow Glen Bend, OR (map)

For the Love of Pets Benefit Festival is a dog-friendly community festival located in Bend that benefits three local shelters in Redmond, Madras and Prineville - specifically Brightside Animal Center, Three Rivers Humane Society and Humane Society of the Ochocos.

The festival is host to a chili cook-off, IPA tasting, live music, kid's activities and adoptable animals galore. Bands: Boxcar Stringband and Friends of Lenny. Chili cook-off and IPA tasting cards can be purchased at the information booth (cash only) and proceeds go back to the shelters. Both the cook-off and tasting will end at approximately 3 p.m., so eat and drink early so you can cast those votes!
