Old Settlers

Old Settlers is the annual town celebration of North Bend, dating back to 1889 when it was a gathering of the area's original settlers and their families. Since then, the Old Settlers Picnic has evolved into three days of festivities, rides, reunions and fun. Old Settlers is organized and sponsored by the North Bend Area Chamber of Commerce.


Old Settlers 2021 will be June 25-27. See an example schedule below for 2019. Old Settlers 2020 had a much reduced schedule because of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time we are planning for a full go and full schedule for Old Settlers 2021!
