Join us in celebrating the natural wonders of Cannon Beach through the blending of arts and ecology. The first annual Earth & Ocean Arts Festival offers the inspiration of exciting new art blended with the gratification of giving back to the ecosystem that sustains us. Performance and studio artists will create and perform on the beaches and in the parks and galleries of Cannon Beach – all with a fresh perspective of our natural world. Members of five environmental non-profits will join the festival, inspiring all of us with their commitment and vision: Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, Friends of Haystack Rock, North Coast Land Conservancy, Sea Turtles Forever, Wildlife Center of the North Coast,
Serving as ambassadors for the intersection of art and activism, we’re very excited to welcome Artichoke Dance Company, an environmentally focused group committed to the power of the arts to effect positive change in people’s lives and communities, especially in regard to plastics pollution. Through dance, they explore the intersection of art with daily life and address pressing ecological realities with physicality and wit. This group is a must see!
The purchase of the $50 three day festival event pass raises money for the participating non-profits and enters the holder in a variety of prize drawings, including a two night stay at a local vacation property, a boat tour of the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, a guided hike with the North Coast Land Conservancy, two $300 gift certificates redeemable at any participating Cannon Beach gallery, dining gift certificates, a whiskey tour and tasting, Kathleen Sheard art glass, and more.
A very special thank you:
To those individuals and businesses making this festival and prize drawings possible: Mike & Tracey Clark, Wave Crest Inn, Cannon Beach Vacation Rentals, Buoy Beer, Cannon Beach Distillery, Cannon Beach Smokehouse, The Wine Shack.
