Your weekly summer stop for beer tastings and Tower Theatre tours is back. Shop Bend’s downtown Farmers Market, and then drop into the Tower through the theatre’s back door on Brooks Promenade for free Worthy Brewing beer and popcorn.
“It’s an easy way to tour the Tower,” says Jodie Barram, director of major giving for the Tower Theatre Foundation. “Folks get to learn about membership opportunities and upcoming events, and hangout in the air conditioning!”
Last year, the Tower’s open houses welcomed an average of 300 people a day, and Arts Reach Magazine praised Worthy Wednesday for offering a “perfect storm of exposure to potential patrons, the sponsor and the community.” Worthy Wednesdays run through July 27. Beer samples will be rotated each week, limit two samples per person per week.
The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The foundation’s mission is to be Central Oregon’s leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and educational programs that make essential contributions to the region’s lifestyle and strength of community. Membership, program information and individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), by phone (541-317-0700) or online (www.towertheatre.org).
