Why the Stormy Weather Arts Festival Is Worth a Stop
A Must for Art Lovers
Every year during the first weekend of November, Cannon Beach’s art community gathers to celebrate its diversity. The Stormy Weather Arts Festival has been around for over 30 years and attracts more and more people each year. You could be one of them! The festival features a wide range of visual and performing arts, and if you are an artist yourself, it’s an event you can’t miss. Meet artists and discuss their work, listen to local musicians, attend gallery events, and so much more!
A Fun Event For Everyone
The Stormy Weather Art Festival is more than an artist gathering; it’s a fun event that appeals to everyone. Each year, the Coaster Theatre Playhouse hosts a spotlight concert to showcase accomplished and up-and-coming musicians. Kick off the festival weekend with a wonderful concert, then hop from gallery to gallery and enjoy a variety of receptions, artist demonstrations, and live performances. Other fun festival events include the Dancing in the Rain Fashion Show and Brews, Blues, & Barbecues.
Experience Cannon Beach Storm Season
Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons in Cannon Beach, but not because of the sun. (Actually, it’s quite the contrary!) Storms are a common occurrence on the Oregon Coast during this time of year. If you want to go storm watching, Cannon Beach is the perfect spot. Watch Mother Nature unleash its rage while you snuggle up in a comfy blanket and unwind by the sea.
