So, Florence, what do you do for an encore?

So, Florence, what do you do for an encore?

Man, that’s gonna be a hard act to follow!

With the 110th annual Rhododendron Festival still looming large in the rear view mirror, what comes next?

All the fun that Oregon’s Coastal Playground has to offer every summer—and even more events starting in July!

Start with fun on our amazing sand dunes, browsing our delightful art galleries and antique shops, riverside shopping and dining, award-winning lodging, beachcombing, wine and craft beer tasting, fine entertainment, and long romantic beach walks at sunset.

The next day you can enjoy world-class golf at two fun and challenging 18-hole courses, or visit the iconic Heceta Head Lighthouse, Sea Lion Caves, or Cape Perpetua. There’s always plenty of hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and crabbing too.

After all, we are Oregon’s Coastal Playground! And that slogan promises a memorable experience for you, your family, and your friends.

Not enough fun to entice you?

Maybe you’ll want to take in the 8th Annual Wings and Wheels fly-in and car show on July 1, the Chamber’s Independence Day Celebration on July 4 (with twice the fireworks as last year!), our 10th annual Rods ‘N Rhodies Invitational Car Show and Community-wide Garage September 8-10, the Chamber’s Wine Walk, Chowderfest, and Great Glass Float Giveaway October 7-9, and the Florence Events Center’s Oktoberfest (and wienerdog races on October 14.
