Tickets are now on sale for the event of the fall season in Cannon Beach, according to Sunset Magazine! After a two-year hiatus, the 2022 fundraiser for the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum roars back to life September 9th through the 11th.
The tour itself will take place on September 10th along the history-steeped Presidential streets of Cannon Beach. Central, and easily walkable, the tour will feature more charm-your-socks-off cottages than ever before, exquisite gardens, and wine tasting at the museum, compliments of The Wine Shack. The tour includes a stop at the storied Coaster Theatre and the Pacific Northwest Dirt Fishers will be on hand hoping to unearth relics from the historic area.
While the tour is the centerpiece of the fundraiser, the whole weekend is bursting with events. Be there Friday for the kickoff, when the museum welcomes everyone for the Opening Night Benefit Bash. Explore Cannon Beach history through our exhibits, enjoy tasty nibbles, meet locals, sip wine, sample brews poured by the masters at Pelican Brewing Company, and place winning bids on coveted items in our first-ever silent auction.
After a night at the museum on Friday, a tour of cottages on Saturday, laced with strolls on our breathtaking beach, stick around for our Garden Tea from 11am to 1pm on Sunday. Held at the Chamber Hall, Doug Kenck-Crispin of Kick Ass Oregon History fame will be our featured speaker. Revel in tales of Oregon’s buried treasures, while savoring teas from North Fork 53 Communitea Wellness and baked yummies from Cannon Beach Bakery.
Join in on a weekend of mindful exploration of the Cannon Beach community while supporting our small, but mighty, museum. The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum, a not-for-profit organization, was created to collect and preserve the history of Cannon Beach and Arch Cape. Admission to the museum is always donation-based, so everyone can visit regardless of their ability to pay. Proceeds from the Cannon Beach Cottage & Garden Tour go directly to the museum to fund lectures, educational programming, shared research, and operating costs throughout the year.

It will be historic!
