NW Community Balloons Over Bend Children’s Festival Benefiting Saving Grace


Bend, OR- For over 22 years Saving Grace has celebrated healthy families and healthy communities with our Saving Grace’s Children’s Festival. This year, Saving Grace has joined in partnership with Balloons Over Bend to create an exciting new family festival that will continue to benefit Saving Grace and our work throughout Central Oregon.  Join us on Saturday July 23 at Riverbend Park from 10am to 6pm.

This festival promotes a healthy, fun lifestyle for children. Nearly 40 different local organizations and businesses are hosting a variety of games and crafts for kids of all ages. Everything from face painting to science experiments with exploding balloons.  There will also be a premier bounce house area and food and craft vendors. A variety of entertainers will take over the stage at Riverbend Park all day long.

This is a great way to enjoy a fun filled day as a family. The festival is free, but tickets must be purchased to participate in the booth activities and the bounce area. In addition to individual tickets, a family pack will be available. For every family pack purchased you will be entered into a children’s bike giveaway drawing.

The proceeds from the festival will go to help provide 100% 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.

For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering at the Children’s Festival please contact lauren@saving-grace.org.  Saving Grace provides comprehensive family violence and sexual assault services and promotes the value of living life free from violence.
