CANNON BEACH — If you haven’t had an opportunity to attend the Cottage & Garden Tour, make this the year! Tickets are now on sale and tend to sell out quickly.

The tour will take place the weekend of Friday, Sept. 7, with a series of fun events for everyone.

For more than a decade the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum has welcomed visitors from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond to tour vintage homes, historic inns and architectural wonders of your favorite coastal town.

Everything starts Friday night with a concert and reception at the museum, 1387 South Spruce St. The RJ Marx Quartet will ease you into a busy weekend of home tours, wine tastings, art exhibits, presentations and more! Tickets to this event are $15.

The tour of homes and gardens — a one-day-only event — will take place Saturday, Sept. 8. Start the day off with a lecture on the history of Cannon Beach from Oregon author Bill Sullivan at the Tolovana Inn, followed by the tour of homes and gardens from noon until 5 p.m. and featuring one of the most iconic historic homes of Cannon Beach. Dough Dough Bakery will prepare the luncheon. Luncheon and lecture tickets are $25.

The museum will offer a little something extra this year, too. Local musicians Maggie Kitson and Rich Thomasian will play music for you in one of the gardens from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets for the Home & Garden tour are $35.

A 1920s jazz-themed concert with the Honeyville Rascals takes place at the museum. This event is included in the cost of a tour ticket, but if you don’t make it to the Home & Garden Tour, tickets will be available at the door. A costume competition and raffle will take place at 7 p.m. The reception will be overflowing with beer from Fort George & Buoy Beer, wine and tasty treats.

The final event of the weekend is a garden tea at the Tolovana Inn on Sunday, Sept. 9. Attendees will enjoy English-style tea with real teacups and saucers and tea from Kettle Black. The presentation will be given by gardening professional Lucy Hardiman of Perennial Partners. Scones, cucumber sandwiches and other delectable treats prepared by Dough Dough Bakery will be sitting on beautiful china displays at each table. Tickets are $20.

The Cottage & Garden Tour is the museum’s annual fundraiser put on by staff and volunteers for 15 years now. The event provides 20 percent of the organization’s annual income and allows them to remain a free museum.

Purchase tickets on the website or by calling 503-436-9301. Tickets for each event may be purchased individually, or as a weekend package. Weekend packages are $75 and include all events. Many of these events sell out, so make your plans as soon as possible.
