Stormy Weather Arts Festival
Celebrates 30th Anniversary!
One of the area’s most popular events will celebrate its 30th anniversary November 3-5, 2017. An annual tradition the first weekend in November, it has been a celebration of the arts and the arts community in Cannon Beach.
Cannon Beach is home to over a dozen art galleries and many successful national and regional artists, as well as prominent local artists; and many will be showcased during the festival.
This creative event focuses on a wide range of visual and performing arts, offering the opportunity to meet artists, discuss their work, listen to local musicians, take in gallery events and experience why Cannon Beach has been recognized as one of “The 100 Best Art Towns in America”, by author John Villani.
The Stormy Weather Arts Festival has grown to include a spotlight concert showcasing accomplished and up-and-coming musicians in the intimate setting of Cannon Beach’s Coaster Theatre Playhouse, the Dancing in the Rain Fashion Show featuring apparel and accessories from local and national designers, and brews, blues & barbecues where guests can sample local beers while enjoying live blues and a barbecue lunch.
The festival kicks off with the Friday night Stormy Weather Arts Benefit cocktail and dessert party where you can meet professional jewelry artists and view their work. The evening also includes a silent auction and raffle featuring vacation packages created by many of the local venders. The auction and raffle benefit the children’s art programs in Cannon Beach including the Coaster Theatre’s Coaster Kidz Theatre Camp, the Cannon Beach Arts Association Children’s Summer Art Camp and the Sea Ranch Children’s Summer Music Camp.
