Earth & Ocean Arts Festival

September 16th – 19th, 2021

Featured artist: Dan Chen

The public is invited to be part of a live art project that will create the world’s largest sea star entirely made up of people in one of the highlights of Cannon Beach’s Earth & Ocean Arts Festival September 16-19. The festival will showcase the wonders of the natural world and encourage environmental awareness and stewardship through a broad range of gallery exhibits, live art performances and events. Other highlights include live performers from acclaimed San Francisco-based theater group We Players who will portray mythological characters throughout town. A fire dancing performance will follow a raku pottery firing on the beach that ends with a burst of flame and smoke that creates the iridescent sheen of raku pottery.

For more than 30 years, the community of Cannon Beach has come together the first weekend in November to celebrate the arts, rain or shine.  Most often, rain, but that’s half the fun.  Amidst late fall storms, painters, sculptors, writers, poets, musicians and more come to Cannon Beach for a weekend packed with art and celebration.  Live music, art demonstrations, gallery receptions, theater and a fashion show are just some of the many happenings.
