Haystack Holidays

Beginning in November, Cannon Beach plays host to Haystack Holidays, a series of holiday events designed to put the fun back into the holiday season. Some Haystack Holidays highlights include Mimosa Madness, Cannon Beach’s refreshing alternative to the craziness of Black Friday; a long time local tradition, the downtown Lamp Lighting Ceremony; and a special holiday concert. Cannon Beach offers the perfect holiday shopping season getaway with the picturesque village lit up festively and shops and galleries offering unique gift opportunities.
