Walk through the grand beach homes, historic cottages and architectural wonders of Cannon Beach during the annual Cottage & Garden Tour each September. In addition to touring some of the beautiful homes in town, visitors can enjoy live music; take in architectural and naturalist lectures; and partake in an English-style garden tea.
Guests can enjoy the tour of homes on Saturday afternoon, as it guides them through the cottages, dream homes and fairy tale gardens of Cannon Beach. Participants can also enjoy lectures from experts in topics like gardening and architectural design. Opportunities to enjoy live music and refreshments throughout the weekend culminate with Sunday's English-style garden tea party.
The Cottage and Garden Tour functions as the main fundraiser for the History Center and allows them to continue to operate as a donation-based museum, as well as enabling them to offer free lecture series, a field trip program and a seasonal acoustic series. Tickets can be purchased individually or as a weekend package and are available at the Cannon Beach History Center website. For more information, visit the website or call 503.436.9301.
