Fairs and Festivals

North Coasters love festivals! There is no shortage of them on the Oregon Coast and Long Beach Peninsula in Washington. Kite festivals, seafood festivals, arts festivals, sandcastle contests – you name it, we have it. Some of our more unique events include a Scandinavian Festival, a Barbershop Caberet, and a Tall Ships (sailing ships) event in nearby Ilwaco, Washington. Throughout the off-season months, enjoy events such as jazz festivals, Oktoberfest, and the Fisher Poets readings. If you are looking for something more traditional, try the Clatsop County Fair in August.
