Welcoming Week takes place September 12-20, 2020. Welcoming Week is a series of events in the community that raise awareness about Bend’s status as a Welcoming City and the benefits of welcoming everyone, including immigrants and refugees. On June 21, 2017, the Bend City Council unanimously supported a resolution for the City of Bend to become a Welcoming City. Participation in Welcoming Week is one of the requirements for recognition as a Welcoming City.

Each year, the City of Bend joins numerous community partners in celebrating Welcoming Week, a series of community-organized events that highlight the principles of inclusion and create communities that prosper because everyone feels welcome. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of this year’s Welcoming Week events have taken virtual form.

In addition to attending Welcoming Week events, community members are encouraged to participate on social media. Participants can post a photo with an “I’m a Welcomer” sign to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Tag the City of Bend page and use the hashtags #IWelcome and #WelcomingWeek to show support for Welcoming Week. There is also a Bend Welcoming Week photo frame available to add to Facebook profile photos.
