Beginning in mid-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. Of course, when your shopping is done, you can enjoy the spectacular Oregon Coast during a season like no other.
Haystack Holidays events also include live theater performances of It's a Wonderful Life at the Coaster Theatre, wreath-making workshops, Holiday Tea at the Library and a Christmas concert with the Cannon Beach Chorus.
