Seasonal Celebrations for Winter’s Solstice

Left Edge Jazz will perform at Salishan’s Attic Lounge from 6-9pm, the Snug Harbor Bar & Grill will host its Christmas Hat & Ugly Sweater Karaoke party starting at 9pm, and DJ Andrew Eternity will provide tunes for the dancefloor at The Beach Club & Event Center starting at 10pm.
A Festive Weekend for Family & Friends
Whether you’re spending the holidays with the whole family, enjoying a romantic winter getaway with your special someone, or taking time out with friends, Lincoln City will provide the backdrop for a beautiful weekend with loved ones as Christmas week approaches. Everyone will enjoy Saturday Morning Cinema at the Bijou Theatre on the 23rd of December, when the holiday classic ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ plays at 11am to benefit Lincoln City’s Warming Shelter. If you’re looking to laugh, then stop by Comedy Night at the Beach Club and Event Center from 8pm to 11pm Saturday for Amanda Arnold and special guest. There are also live music acts playing all over town this Saturday, including Sami Rouissi at Salishan’s Attic Lounge from 6-9pm, Bryan Nichols at MIST Restaurant & Lounge from 7-10pm, Ronnie Jay Duo at Black Squid Beerhouse from 8-10pm, and Brett Lucich at Snug Harbor Bar & Grill at 9pm.
The Calm of Christmas on the Oregon Coast
Restaurants, bars, and other businesses start winding down on the 24th of December, and Lincoln City is filled with a sense of calm as Christmas approaches. You can still enjoy the beach and strolls through town, though, and will even find that many businesses keep their doors open throughout the holiday. On Christmas Eve, Brett Lucich will put on one more show at Snug Harbor Bar & Grill, starting at 8:30pm. If you’re in town for Christmas but don’t want to cook, you can even visit Fathoms Restaurant & Bar at the Inn at Spanish Head for their Christmas Day Buffet from 12-7pm on December 25th, but make sure to call ahead for reservations. And if you still have energy to go out the day after Christmas, head over to the Ugly Sweater Glow Bowl Party at Olde Line Lanes & Kitchen from 6-8pm on the 26th, and make sure to wear your ugliest Christmas sweater!
Whatever you have in mind for your winter getaway, just make sure to act fast if you want to book one of the remaining beach houses or beach condo rentals.
