To our Cottage Tour attendees and Cannon Beach History Center & Museum family,
The 17th Annual Cottage Tour, scheduled for September 11 -13, 2020, in Cannon Beach, Oregon will not go ahead as planned.
The decision was not reached lightly, and we know it will be a difficult one for many. We have spent the recent weeks listening to our partners in the event production industry, government agencies, healthcare professionals, residents and volunteers who helped us reach this point. Bottom line, the health of our homeowners, volunteers, and attendees must come first. The uncertainty of the future and navigating social distancing in the homes slated for this year’s tour seems insurmountable at this time.
That said, we cannot let you go empty handed! We would like to share a digital historic walking tour map of businesses in Cannon Beach. We are busy working hard on the map and plan to have it ready for you in the next few weeks.
As you know, the Cottage Tour is the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum’s main fundraiser. We hope you will consider supporting us by making a tax-deductible donation, or purchasing one of our great online gifts – look for the $5 Fall Raffle to be entered in to win a Cannon Beach themed gift basket. We’re working hard to bring fun Cannon Beach history things for you to do with your families, such as the upcoming Self Guided Historic Walking Tour map which will include an interactive map, links, cool historical facts, more, coming soon! Keep checking back here for the latest on more exciting events. We appreciate your support in helping us recover from the loss of this event to continue promoting, preserving and sharing the history of Cannon Beach and Arch Cape.
Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate this difficult situation together.
Stay healthy and take care.
Next year’s Cottage Tour will be held September 10-12, 2021, and volunteers are always needed to assist with this fun event. As a volunteer, you get to see the homes, free of charge.
If you are interested in volunteering for this year’s tour, please call us at 503-436-9301 or email the Development Coordinator, Andrea Suarez at email@example.com for more information. Thank you for your support!
For those that have already signed up to volunteer, we are very grateful for your commitment and dedication to this event. Thank you!

In addition to sharing the rich history and amazing homes in Cannon Beach, the goal of the annual Tour is to raise funds for the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum. This fundraiser contributes a significant amount of the non-profit’s annual income. Thank you to our generous sponsors who have helped contribute to this year’s tour!
