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 waiting for the north-end bridge to be fixed.

The Sandcastle Contest itself will be held on June 21st, 2025.
