1968 was a momentous year. Apollo 8 became the first manned spacecraft to orbit the moon. The Beatles released their sprawling White Album. McDonald’s introduced the Big Mac – you could order one for $.49. The long-running news program 60 Minutes debuted on CBS. And in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascadian Mountains, Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel, opened its doors.
A half-century later, a lot has changed. But Sunriver is still welcoming guests to its little slice of Pacific Northwest paradise – and the resort is celebrating 50 golden years with an array of events, activities and offers. Join us for an unforgettable summer.
50th Anniversary Party
Saturday, June 30
Pack your tie-dye shirt and bellbottoms, because we’re going to party like it’s 1968. Sunriver’s 60s-themed celebration party will feature groovy sounds from the High Street Band, a costume contest (get creative!) and delicious food and drink from that decade.
Bonus: Looking for more 1960s fun? Retro-cool board games from 1968 are available at the front desk. And don’t forget to ask about 60s-inspired cocktails and food specials at Carson's American Kitchen and Twisted River Tavern.
50th Anniversary Bike Tour & Beer Tasting
Wednesdays, starting June 20
At Sunriver, we love bikes and we love beer. So why not bring these two passions together? On an afternoon guided cruiser bike ride around Sunriver, you’ll see some iconic sights and get the inside scoop on resort’s 50-year history. And then, we’ll stop in at The Backyard to enjoy some of Central Oregon’s best craft brews. Get all the details.
60's Trivia Night at Twisted River Tavern
June 20th | 6:30-8:30pm
Go back in time to 1968 and join us for a night of 60’s trivia and prizes. We’ll have 60’s-inspired food and drink specials at Twisted River Tavern to add to the fun!
Gold Spa Treatment
Ready to go for the gold? Sunriver’s Sage Springs Spa is offering a luxurious Gold Spa Treatment for the resort’s golden anniversary. You’ll receive a full body hot stone massage paired with a rich, harmonizing metal-conducting oil, followed by a balancing bowl of four unique metals massages the feet. Then, feel the rejuvenating effects a 24-karat gold facial mask and cold stone facial massage. To book, call Sage Springs Spa at 541-593-7891.
Since Sunriver is throwing it back to the swinging 1960s this summer, you’ll need the appropriate apparel. Tuesday through Saturday starting June 19, you’ll have the chance to tie-dye some Sunriver t-shirts, adding some color to our classic designs. A great family activity! Get the details.
Social Media Music Contest
Calling all musicians! In Sunriver’s early days, the resort created a charming infomercial with the tagline: “Sunriver, the only thing missing is you.” It’s a fun time capsule – but we want new music for it. So we’re asking fans to re-write the music and inviting guests to vote for their favorite. Follow Sunriver on Facebook for details.
