Tickets Now Available for the 21st Annual Cannon Beach Cottage Tour!

CANNON BEACH, Ore. – Heralded as the “best autumn event in Cannon Beach” by Sunset Magazine, the 21st Annual Cannon Beach Cottage Tour returns with a weekend packed with activities from September 13-15, featuring the much-anticipated home tour on Saturday, September 14. Join us in celebrating over two decades of opening doors to historic cottages, beach dream homes, and architectural marvels. This beloved fundraiser for the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum has, for more than 20 years, showcased numerous homes, many highlighted in The Oregonian and Oregon Home Magazine.

While the home tour is the highlight, kick off the festivities on Friday, September 13, with the Opening Night Benefit Bash at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum. Doors open at 5:30 PM, welcoming you to an evening filled with music by Heather Christie Band, hors d’oeuvres, local brews from Pelican Brewing Company, wines from The Wine Shack, and a chance to bid on exclusive items in our second annual silent auction. Explore the rich history of Cannon Beach through the museum’s exhibits in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

The home tour itself takes place on Saturday, September 14, from 12 PM to 5 PM. This year’s theme centers on cottages built over 80 years ago, located in areas like the Presidential Streets and behind the Coaster Theatre, with some homes being a century old. Your ticket also includes “Out on the Town” perks, offering discounts at local businesses. We strongly encourage advance ticket purchases, as prices will increase on the day of the tour. Maps will be distributed at noon on the day of the tour.

Stay for the new Paint and Sip Workshop on Sunday, September 15. Enjoy beverages and treats from Cannon Beach Bakery and Cannon Beach Chocolate Café while painting under the guidance of local artist Dmitri Swain. Have you ever wanted to capture the natural beauty of a coastal seascape or the rustic quaintness of a beach cottage in the sand dunes? In this beginner level watercolor course, you will learn simple techniques to create expressive watercolor compositions. No previous art knowledge is needed. All supplies will be provided for students. Choose between a morning session from 10 AM to 12 PM or an afternoon session from 1 PM to 3 PM. Tickets are limited and expected to sell out quickly.
