Make the Most of Your Christmas in Oregon 

Cannon Beach Christmas

Every town has its holiday traditions—or at least, the fun ones. In Cannon Beach, Haystack Holidays is a series of can’t-miss festive events at the end of the year. Think: Christmas light competitions, classes to make Christmas decorations, and local companies offering holiday sweets. Some have been running for longer than others, but all are equally suited for fun and festivities. During your stay at Tolovana Inn, spend Christmas in Oregon the right way by participating in fun local traditions. 

A Small Town’s Christmas in Oregon 

No matter where visitors are coming from, the quirks and charming qualities that a small-town Christmas in Oregon brings to the table are undeniable. Cannon Beach’s fun Christmas traditions are something travelers are sure to love. 

Cannon Beach in Lights 

What’s more fun than a town-wide Christmas contest? Both businesses and homeowners alike can deck out their buildings in their favorite type of lights, whether it’s string, icicle, or color-changing lights. Visitors and locals alike can even vote for their favorite entry. With this kind of friendly competition, Christmas lights in Oregon have never been more fun. 

Name that Tune Window Display Contest 

When strolling through our downtown shops in Cannon Beach on Hemlock Street, take window shopping to another level. Businesses can opt to create window displays that represent their favorite Christmas songs. So, instead of seeing enviable sweaters and clothing, shoppers will see the Little Drummer Boy—or perhaps Michael Buble himself. 

Lamp Lighting Ceremony Cannon Beach 

Decades ago, the lamp lighting ceremony began with locals dressing up in Victorian garb and gathering in Sandpiper Square. Now, the lamp that they would light continues to ignite the people’s holiday spirits at the end of the year. Visitors can join in on this Cannon Beach tradition to round out their experience of Christmas in Oregon.
