The Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest

The Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest has been an ongoing tradition in Cannon Beach since 1964 when an earthquake in Alaska triggered a tsunami that hit the Oregon Coast. Locals organized a community activity while they were waiting for the north-end bridge to be fixed.

This year the contest will celebrate its 60th year on June 15. Join us on the beach and try your hand at building a sandcastle or come to watch! Interested in what the weekend's activities will entail? View the event schedule below.
