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
  • Oregon Coast Garage Sale – April 15th thru 17th
  • Lincoln City Kite Festival – June 25th and 26th
  • Siletz Bay Music Festival – June 22nd thru July 4th

Make sure you get your lodging reservations for these events early.  We still have availability at Lincoln City Beach Retreats for some of them.

Kite Festival – June 27 and 28, 2015

IMAG0101[1]June 27th and 28th are the dates for the Summer Kite Festival in Lincoln City, OR. Once again I expect that I will be attending and will get to experience some of the premier kite fliers from all over the region. There are two fields setup in the sand at the “D” River Wayside… the field on the left is reserved for the display kites like you see in the pictures. Some of these are just huge! In the right field you will get to watch them fly 2 and 4 line stunt kites to music, sometimes in teams… it is absolutely mesmerizing.

If you haven’t had an opportunity to attend I would encourage you to do so. The past couple of years the weather has been absolutely gorgeous…I seem to recall a pretty bad sunburn.

Below are a couple of videos that I created from previous visits.

As a side note…if you were staying in one of Lincoln City Beach Retreat’s condos you wouldn’t have to fight the parking you could just walk over event. Click on the property pictures above or enter the dates in the search to the right to see if we still have availability. We can accommodate up to 8 people.
