OREGON DIVISIONAL CHAINSAW CARVING CHAMPIONSHIP – CANCELLED for 2020

This is an announcement we had hoped not to have to make.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Carving Championship has been cancelled.

I am sorry to say that DuneFest 2020 has been cancelled. Governor Brown announced that “large gatherings such as conventions, festivals, and major concerts and live audience sporting events will need to be cancelled at least through September. Restarting events of this size will require a reliable treatment or prevention, like a vaccine, which is many months off”.

As a Chamber event, we were holding out hope that things would improve.

For those of you who have been coming for years and collect dog tags or camping stickers, we will have 2020 items available with the phrase #quarantined on them. Please send an email to dunefestevent@gmail.com with the subject “quarantined” and we will put them in the mail to you as soon as they are available.

I am sincerely sorry to cancel the event which brings so many people and businesses together. If allowed, we will try to pull off some dune related activities later in the summer/early fall.

Sincerely,
Jody Morrow
DuneFest Coordinator

It is with deep regret that we inform you the 2020 Kool Coastal Nights Car Show has been cancelled. We had hoped that it would be safe for everyone to gather and enjoy the car show. Orders from the office of the Governor of Oregon preclude that from being a possibility for this year. Please know that the health and safety of our community and participants is of the utmost importance to us. We will miss seeing you this year, but are counting the days til’ August 28, 2021 when we can all enjoy Kool Coastal Nights!
