Must See Local Events

If you enjoy participating in a variety of events, primarily outdoors, then Central Oregon is the perfect vacation spot for you. During the warm weather months (April through October) there are events occurring here every week. Activity options range from sports competitions, rodeos and music festivals to weekly concerts on the lawn, wine or beer fests, or antique and art shows and sales. That doesn’t include the beautiful natural attractions of rivers, mountains, wildlife or lava caves. And the golf courses – oh my! They are beautiful.

The nearest town to Long Hollow Ranch is the charming little western city of Sisters. In spite of its modest size, Sisters really does have much to offer visitors. Fine restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, and artisan studios, not to mention spas, brewpubs, and great shopping venues are all there to enjoy.

One of our favorite spots is Sisters Coffee Company, where you can get coffee, roasted and ground in-house, to go with a tasty scone or muffin.  The Shop is built in the lodge style with beautiful woodwork inside and out.  You can enjoy your treat at a table inside near the fireplace, or outside under the trees when the weather allows.

A well-known local and historical event is the Sisters Rodeo, held usually the second weekend in June. At Long Hollow we always have room for guests who want to come to Central Oregon for the rodeo –“The Biggest Little Rodeo in the World.” Our guests can stay with us during these events as bed and breakfast guests. And, some choose to add extra meals and/or trail rides to their experience.

The biggest annual event in the area is the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, which is always scheduled for the second Saturday in July. The event lasts for a week culminating in the Quilt Show on Saturday. Quilters from all over the world come every year for this event and if you wish to experience this event, you need to make reservations early as every available room is filled for this one. Many of our guests quickly reserve their room for the following year!

Whether you enjoy activities you can participate in or those you can sit back and observe Central Oregon has something for everyone. For more ideas of what to do near Sisters, visit our list of local area activities!
