Busy February…

funThere is a lot going on in the area for February and I would encourage you to book your travel now and enjoy the winter experiences on the Oregon Coast…

In Lincoln City from the 5th thru the 15th you can enjoy Antique Week.    (Since when does a “week” have 11 days?)  If you are looking for antiques and collectibles, there are over 100 dealers spread throughout a number of different shops in Lincoln City.  During this festival you may just find that perfect treasure that you have been looking for and you will be able to get it for a discounted price.

Also during the festival there will be 300 special “antique” floats hidden on the beach for you to find and keep if you happen to find one.  This is part of the winter festival held every year in Lincoln City called “Finder’s Keepers”.   As an added bonus on Valentine’s Day they are going to be hiding 14 pieces of art glass in the shape of hearts.

If those two weren’t enough… near the end of the month you can venture down to Newport for the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival.   Over 150 premier wines from the Pacific Northwest,  great food, and amazing artists make this a great winter festival to attend.   (This is a ticketed event.)  You can get your tickets online here.

Just around the corner…

  • Lincoln City 1/2 Marathon – March 6th
  • Festival of Illusions – Spring Break – March 20th – 25th at the Cultural Center

Lincoln City Chalk Art Challenge – July 11

chalkitupIf you happen to be in Lincoln City on July 11th you should plan to stop at the Lincoln City Cultural Center (just north of the D river and south of 6th) for the Chalk Art Competition.   This is the second time this event has been held in what appears to be a new annual event for the city.

All skill levels (children, families and accomplished artists) are invited to attend.   The day starts with a free workshop from a professional chalk art instructor from 9 to 11 and then everyone is invited to create their masterpieces from 11 to 3.   The competition is broken into categories for the awards and prizes.

If you are not wanting to be a chalk artist there will be booths setup on the lawn that will sell food and drink.  Stop by and take a look at what these artists are doing…

There’s always something fun going on in Lincoln City or the surrounding area.   Perhaps you should consider visiting… Lincoln City Beach Retreats can offer you accommodations…check us out!
