Art, Culture and Outdoor Recreation
On the south bank of the Coquille River, waves lap against the boats in the marina, while gulls swoop and cry overhead. Old Town attractions include public art displays, including one of a kind wood sculptures and the annual Port of Bandon Boardwalk Art Show. Port staff are available to answer questions and get you started fishing and crabbing from your boat, or off Webber’s Pier.
While you stroll, take in the view of the Coquille River lighthouse and watch the seals bobbing in the marina. Our pedestrian-friendly boardwalk features nooks (and benches) where you can pause and enjoy the view. Visit Washed Ashore Art to Save the Sea, in the Harbortown Events Center, for public art installations, workshops and marine education.
Old Town is a hub of activity during the 4th of July, the annual September Cranberry Festival, and the winter holidays.
Watch the event calendar for the free, family-friendly summertime lecture series at the Port of Bandon boardwalk picnic shelter. Enjoy interactive presentations on wildlife, local history and more.
