The Central Oregon (USA) 11th Hoedown For Hunger will take place at Bend’s Community Center (BCC), 1036 NE 5th St, Bend, OR 97701 on Saturday, Nov. 5 beginning at 3 p.m. This event is kind of mini-festival that features local artists who donate their performances each year to help raise money for BCC’s “Feed the Hungry” project. Many of Central Oregon’s finest acoustic performers participate. This year’s event will include Central Oregon’s busiest performer Bobby Lindstrom as well as 10-year old fiddle phenomenon CJ Neary, a multiple winner at the National Old Time Fiddler’s Championships to go along with state and regional titles. The music tends towards country, bluegrass and folk, but past shows have included some blues, celtic, and soul.
In addition to the music, the Hoedown also features a chili feed with a variety of chili recipes from restaurants and caterers of Central Oregon.
