Fun for Art Lovers
Art lovers always have plenty of great choices at their fingertips in Lincoln City, with a plethora of galleries, museums and shops featuring arts and crafts from local makers. Those who find themselves in town May 17-19 will be in for an especially artful treat as the ‘Art on the Edge’ Annual Central Oregon Coast Art Studio Tour returns. The Lincoln City Cultural Center’s Chessman Gallery hosts this annual event, which allows visitors to peruse the studio spaces of celebrated visual artists from Oregon’s Central Coast. Artists will be inviting the public into their private studios, demonstrating their creative processes, and offering work for sale between 10am and 5pm each day.
Fun for Beach Combers
If you are in town on May 20, you may also be lucky enough to find a piece of art right on the beach that you can take home with you! Lincoln City is celebrating 20 years of its unique Finders Keepers tradition, where colorful glass floats are “hidden” by float fairies along the city’s beaches between Roads End and Siletz Bay during designated times of year. As part of the celebration, an extra 20 floats decorated with the new Explore Lincoln City branding will be hidden along the beach on the 20th of each month.
May 21 will also be a great day to explore the beach for crabs and possibly catch your own dinner! A free crabbing clinic will take place at the pavilion on Southwest 51st Street, in the Historic Taft District, starting at 1:45pm. The clinic will begin with a brief orientation, then you’ll walk down to Siletz Bay to get the crabbing underway. No registration is required but you might want to visit the Explore Lincoln City website for more details.
Fun for Music and Movie Lovers
There are so many upcoming music performances at various venues around Lincoln City that it would take pages to list them all, so you can rest assured that whenever you’re planning on visiting something will be on. One popular recurring event will take place at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on May 19; the latest installment of the center’s Coffee Concerts series features local musicians with free pastries and coffee for all attendees. And if movies are more your thing, you also won’t be disappointed if you’re in town on a Saturday.
