June 9: Cannon Beach Sandcastle Building Competition

Just minutes from Seaside you will find Master artists creating monumental sculptures that are washed away with the next high tide in a 53-year tradition at Cannon Beach, Oregon this June.

Dozens of teams of master sand sculpture artists, amateur groups and families will construct remarkable creations in the sand as Cannon Beach, Oregon celebrates the 53rd anniversary of its Annual Sandcastle Contest on Saturday, June 17. It’s the oldest sandcastle contest in the Northwest and the most popular annual event in this North Oregon Coast town.
