Newberry Event Brings Arts & Music to La Pine Area

newberryeventHosted by DiamondStone Guest Lodges across from the Newberry National Monument’s road to Paulina Lake, the Newberry Event is a three-day country fair with a wide variety of music, artists and craft vendors. There will be 20-30 musicians performing folk, bluegrass, rock, reggae, jazz and even a piano soloist July 25-27.


The goals of the Newberry Music and Art Festival Fundraiser are to raise research funds for the Oregon Chapter Multiple Sclerosis Society, and to promote Southern Deschutes County highlighting art and music. South Deschutes County is a recreation paradise and this event invites people to discover why La Pine is a hidden treasure that is becoming known as a beautiful location for music festivals.


This second annual event was well received last August, reported as “something really special, a broad variety of musicians and styles playing back to back short sets of folk, jazz, rock, reggae and jazz. The Newberry Event set a new standard with high fidelity sound by Sonic Solutions.


Genres have expanded further, with Louis Landon Pianist for Peace. Headliner surprises are Craig Chaquico, Jefferson Starship’s lead guitarist, now solo, and Rose’s Pawn Shop, an L.A. Americana band. Creative performances from Vagabond Opera, and ‘UHane Hawaii Hula Dancers break up the music. American folk icons Brewer & Shipley (the One Toke Over the Line Boys) and Portland’s Terry Robb blues master return. Pigs on the Wing Pink Floyd tribute band will be great, accompanied by La Pine’s Laser Zone light show.


Food vendors and food trucks will be present at the event and will be serving gourmet tacos, brick oven pizza, kettlecorn and more. The Lions club offers pancake breakfasts each morning. La Pine’s Frontier Days and Worthy Brewing are the main sponsors.
