Fall Kite Festival

Or, just bring yourself and check out all the high-flying fun! This biannual tradition is fun for the whole family with plenty of kite-flying activities to enjoy. It’s a great excuse to visit Lincoln City for the weekend.
Dark & Stormy Nights at Driftwood Public Library
“It Was a Dark and Stormy Night,” as the saying goes. This is also the theme of Driftwood Public Library’s series of autumn author events that return each year as the days get shorter and darker. A new author will read and share their work every Thursday afternoon in October starting at 4 PM at 801 Southwest Highway 101. Author Dana Haynes will be the first presenter on October 3, Christa Yelich-Koth will be the second presenter on October 10, Valerie Davisson will be the third presenter on October 17, and Alexandra Mason will be the fourth presenter on October 24. The library has been bringing Pacific Northwest mystery writers to the Central Oregon Coast with this special series of readings since the late Marcy Taylor started the tradition in 2002. There is no charge for any of these “mysterious” literary events.
Haunted Taft Tours
If you love a good scary story, then you will want to book one of our beach houses or beach condo rentals during an upcoming weekend in October and book your spot on one of the Haunted Taft Tours. Local storytellers will take you through town on an hour and a half walk while listening to spooky lore from the Oregon coast, such as the tale of the Ghost Schooner of Siletz Bay, bigfoot sightings, and more. Tours cost $10-$20 and will take place Friday, October 4 at 6 PM and 7 PM; Saturday, October 5 at 6 PM; Friday, October 11 at 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM; and Saturday, October 12 at 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM. There will also be a special Full Moon Tour on Sunday, October 13 at 5:30 PM with Lincoln City Council Members doing the storytelling. Attendees must be at least eight years old and must contact Shellie Stuart at Shellie@TaftBeach.com to reserve a spot on the tour in advance.
Finders Keepers Kickoff Weekend
Lincoln City is known for its Finders Keepers on the Beach, where glass floats are hidden by “float fairies” for members of the public to find and take home. There will be an additional 100 glass floats hidden around the beach on October 12 and 13 to celebrate the return of Finders Keepers for its 20th anniversary season. The floats are hidden along Lincoln City’s 7½ miles of coastline throughout the year, though, and even if you don’t find one you can always purchase a glass float made by a local artisan at one of the city’s many gift shops. Autumn is awesome in Lincoln City, and these festive fall events are just a glimpse of what’s in store when you visit after the heat of summer starts to cool down.
