The Stormy Weather Arts Festival in Cannon Beach provides a wonderful opportunity to collectively celebrate and explore the towns’ artistic culture.
The festival weekend is filled with art shows, receptions, music, and live music. Galleries, and shops host events celebrating the creativity of painters, sculptors and musicians.
Since its inception, the first weekend in November has been a celebration of the arts where you can immerse yourself in the creative culture that has earned Cannon Beach the distinction of as one of the Top Best Art Towns in America.
Over the years, the event has grown to include a spotlight concert that showcases accomplished or 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.
On Friday evening and all day Saturday, visitors can wander from gallery to gallery enjoying a variety of receptions and artist demonstrations and catch free live music performances with regional musicians at indoor and outdoor venues throughout the town as they go.
