For 35 years, the Stormy Weather Arts Festival on the first weekend in November has been one of Cannon Beach’s most popular events . You can immerse yourself in the creative culture that has long been a part of this community recognized as one of the 100 best art towns in America. The weekend offers musical performances and gallery events with the opportunity to meet renowned artists, see their latest works or watch them demonstrate their techniques.

Enjoy a variety of gallery receptions, artist demonstrations, and paint classes, and catch free live musical performances with regional musicians at outdoor venues throughout the town. Cannon Beach is home to more than a dozen art galleries. Many of their most successful national and regional artists and prominent local artists will be showcased during the festival.
