If you would like to support your local museum once again, our Cannon Beach Cottage & Garden Tour returns as a live, in-person event in 2022! This beloved three-day event, now in its 19th year, will take place the weekend of September 9th.
As the town’s only museum, we act as stewards of the history of Cannon Beach and Arch Cape. Our small town museum is home to over 12,000 photos, thousands of historic documents and artifacts, as well as permanent and temporary exhibits related to the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Cannon Beach and Arch Cape, shipwrecks, and more. The museum is also home to the cannon that Cannon Beach is named for!
The tour has received numerous accolades over the years in Oregon Home Magazine, Sunset Magazine, The Oregonian, Seattle Times, among others. Over the years, homes from the tour have had their architecture, home design, and gardens featured in Oregon Home Magazine, The Oregonian, and Our Coast Magazine. In 2016, Sunset Magazine called it the “best autumn event in Cannon Beach.” In 2019, we had over 700 attendees and we anticipate exceeding that number in 2022.
