Lay It Out Events 2019 Schedule!

Lay It Out Events produces more than 20 festivals, races and contract events each year. We do everything from Balloons Over Bend to Theater In The Park.

Through these events, LIOE donates a portion of proceeds to local nonprofit organizations. 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.

At LIOE we are looking forward to another year of inspiring events that bring not only fun but awareness to the entire community.
