February 15, 16 and 17, 2019
The Gorse Blossom Festival comes to Bandon President’s Day weekend.
First stop is the Old Town Marketplace, on the Coquille River waterfront, where vendors showcase Pacific Northwest wine, beer, food, crafts and live music.
Explore Old Town during the Pub Crawl. And, get ready to raise a glass to the Bloody Mary Stroll, a movable cocktail feast.
Festival-themed dining options include a prix fixe wine dinner at Edgewaters and brew maker dinner at the Loft with Arch Rock Brewing Company.
The Gorse Blossom Festival highlights Bandon’s heritage– with a quirky angle on local horticulture– and was named 2017 winner for Best Downtown Special Event by the Oregon Main Street program. Early birds can join the Gorse Action Group’s Science Pub on Thursday evening.
The festival is organized by the Greater Bandon Association.
Tickets and event details are available online at gorseblossomfest.com.
