Stars Over Newberry

Friday, September 8, 2023

6:30pm - 9:30pm

Join us for an evening of bliss at the top of Lava Butte on Friday, September 8, 2023. Attendees can listen to live music by Blackstrap Bluegrass, eat and drink through a showcase of the Pacific Northwest’s edible highlights, enjoy a guided night sky tour by Worthy Environmental and Dark Sky Oregon, and help raise money for an incredible cause. The annual Stars Over Newberry event is back and better than ever. This year’s ticket includes everything you’ll need for the evening; a seated dinner by Bowtie Catering, drinks by Worthy Brewing and Lava Terrace Cellars, and dessert. The silent auction includes getaways, excursions, staycations, prints from some of Bend’s best photographers, and more! Get thousands of local kids outdoors and give back to your Public Lands while enjoying a star-studded night out.



Proceeds from the event help us fund our programs, expand our reach to under-served communities, and offer free field trips to thousands of Central Oregon’s youth annually!
