Munch and Music Kicks Off on 4th of July

34th annual free music series returns to Drake Park

The 34th annual Munch and Music event returns to Bend this summer, kicking off on July 4. The free music series occurs every Thursday from July 4 through Aug. 8, featuring a variety of vendors offering food, beverages, arts and crafts, a kids' area with inflatables and child-friendly activities — and a fantastic music lineup.

"We are sticking to the traditions of what Munch and Music is all about: free live music in beautiful Drake Park with all of the amazing vendors," says Shannon Talbo, owner/event producer of Sionna Productions and event manager at Munch and Music.

The 34th annual Munch and Music concert series kicks off on July 4 at Drake Park.

There will be a selection of 25 food vendors that people can choose from, along with beverage stations featuring Deschutes Brewery and Avid Cider, providing refreshments and delicious food throughout the event.

"The most exciting part is Munch and Music kicks off on the 4th of July. It'll be fun to offer something in the evening for the whole community around the same time the fireworks are culminating," Talbo added.

Attendees can join Munch and Music for an unforgettable evening on the 4th of July featuring the talented guitar stylings of Ron Artis II with special guest the Miles Harris Trio, creating a funky rhythmic vibe perfect for the whole family.

"We've got an amazing music lineup this year," states Talbo. "I just love that Munch and Music is still a way for people to still see music and come together as a community for free. Munch and Music is an event that really identifies with Bend. I just think Drake Park is such a special location."

Munch and Music is a tradition locals and visitors can look forward to in the heart of Drake Park. "We really want to thank our sponsors for being able to continue to come back year after year and support us.
