Art In Nature - Take Me to the River

Sat, Jul 31, 2021 at 3:45pm

This event has passed.

Join Wanderlust Tours for an intimate paddle and concert experience we call Take Me to the River. In search of the soul of American music, we will share the inspiration of the natural world through a canoe and kayak journey down the Deschutes River. At our pull out point local artists will share their music along the river’s banks. Integrate yourself with nature and artistic expression with the multi generational music of three bands.

Take Me to the River is an event inspired by the soul, and here in Bend, our soul can be found in the rivers, mountains and deserts of central Oregon. Join us in another moment of confluence between art & nature. Learn more at
