About Us

Lay It Out Events produces more than 20 festivals, races and contract events each year. Events include Oregon WinterFest, Bend Fall and Summer Festival, Bite of Bend, The Little Woody, Cascades Wedding Show, Balloons Over Bend Children's Festival and Theater in the Park. LIOE Races include the Happy Girls Run Series, Haulin' Aspen, Salmon Run and Kids Rock the Races. For each ticketed event and race, LIOE donates a portion of proceeds to local nonprofit organizations. Through our beneficiaries, we raise awareness and much-needed funds for vital nonprofit groups across the Northwest. In the past 10 years, LIOE has donated over $225,000 to local charities and nonprofits.
