In normal years, Art in the High Desert takes place on the last weekend of August in the Old Mill District. This year's event has been canceled, organizers announced Monday.

Art show announces cancellation — Events that draw large crowds continue to be postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Art in the High Desert, Bend’s premiere, juried art show, announced Monday it had made the difficult decision to cancel its August event after the state of Oregon banned large gatherings through at least September. Organizers are planning the event’s 13th year for Aug. 27-29, 2021. Contact: artinthehighdesert.com.
