(Oregon Coast) – There's little that excites like the energy and massive frivolity of the Fourth of July on the coast. Oregon's shoreline brings a huge array of events – from Brookings to Astoria, and in some small towns where you wouldn't expect it. There's even some celebrations on the third and fifth and sixth of the month, spreading out the party into other areas. (Above: Yachats - Oregon Coast Beach Connection)

Yet for a more mellow fourth without the explosions that bother pets and some folks, places like Depoe Bay, Cannon Beach, Reedsport, Pacific City and others will be a welcome respite.

This list of Independence Day events on the Oregon coast is about as complete as it can get right now as some little burghs have not chimed in and currently they are “maybe's.” There are likely no other updates than those below..
