Oregon Coast Calendar: Yachats Spring Events Into Summer
(Yachats, Oregon) – Near the very middle spot along Oregon's 362 miles of beaches, Yachats sits almost directly between Newport and Florence. Its rocky shoreline creates a constant stream of wave drama, and the tiny town is big on fun, even unusual things to do.
Events scattered throughout the spring and summer months run the gamut from food fests, movies, music to nature to-do’s. Jazz, classical and various forms of regional rock and blues are big here, as is wine tasting, quaint little ice cream or fish events, and of course Fourth of July happenings.
