(Warrenton, Oregon) – The end of summer will sizzle up on the north Oregon coast with something brand new, engaging and truly helpful to a historic cause. The First Annual Summer's End Festival is now a go at Fort Stevens near Astoria, featuring live music, local beers and gobs of historical fun, taking place September 3 and 4 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It also hosts a disc golf tournament.

The first-of-a-kind event is about raising funds for the continued restoration work on the Fort Stevens Guardhouse.

“Plans are being made to restore the 1911 Fort Stevens Guardhouse to its former self,” said the Friends of Fort Stevens. “Funding consists of grants developed by the Friends Of Old Fort Stevens, fundraisers such as this Labor Day weekend’s Summer's End Concert, and a major investment by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.”

The group said the Guardhouse will be utilized for museum displays, interpretation of the history of Fort Stevens, as well as much-needed work space.

Fort Stevens' disc golf course comes with 23 holes, guiding players along the Columbia River and through historic, dramatic gun batteries. Along the way, interpretive signs are posted at each tee pad to fill you on the history of this beloved north Oregon coast landmark.

There are some new course designs added as of late as well.

Tickets are $20 on the day, $17 each via pre-sale. Parking and other items like drink tokens are extra. You can purchase them at this link.
