Bend’s Campfire Hotel Set to Culminate its Recognition of Pride Month with a Special Weekend Celebration June 23-25


Already widely recognized as Central Oregon’s most Pride-friendly lodging property, Bend’s Campfire Hotel will culminate its month-long celebration of inclusivity with a weekend Pride celebration June 23-25. As part of the celebration, guests can expect to experience some of Campfire Hotel’s and Canteen’s signature events, such as Diva Drag Brunch, Burlesque Show, pool parties, and more.

“Campfire Hotel was founded on providing a safe, welcoming, and inclusive experience for everyone to enjoy,” says Campfire Hotel general manager Daniel Elder. “And while Pride month is an obvious cause for celebration, we celebrate diversity in many ways throughout the year through strategic partnerships, community involvement, and regular events.”

Pride weekend festivities will begin on Friday, June 23, with a TEASE: Burlesque Revue show from Justin Buckles Productions. Saturday’s event highlights include a Diva Drag Brunch and an evening of Drag Bingo with D’Auntie Carol. And because every visit to Campfire Hotel isn’t complete without a visit to the outdoor swimming pool, Sunday morning will commence with one of the hotel’s legendary pool parties and conclude with Canteen Karaoke.

Campfire, along with its sister property the Hood River Hotel, were recently among the first hotels in Oregon to become ‘Proud Certified’ and earn a Travel Proud badge on the properties’ listings.
