Haystack Holidays – November – December 2022

Winter holidays in Cannon Beach transport you out of city living and into the village charm of the quiet North Coast. Cannon Beach’s exceptional specialty shops, boutiques and galleries are a top attraction in our charming beach town where you’ll find no shopping malls or chain stores in sight; making it a great spot to slow down and enjoy the hunt for those perfect holiday gifts. Add some evergreen garlands, twinkling lights and red ribbon and you’ll begin to see just how much holiday magic can unfold in our beautiful little village by the sea.Beginning in November, we invite you to experience that magic during Haystack Holidays, a series of events designed to celebrate the season unlike anywhere else in the country. Highlights include health & safety conscious events like a virtual LIVE stream of our annual beloved Lamplighting Ceremony, holiday wreath making classes by reservation, outside lighting & window contests, a holiday paint night, virtual storytime with Santa, and holiday foods from around the world featured at local restaurants.  And of course, when your shopping and celebrating is done, you can enjoy the scenic Oregon Coast during a season like no other.
