Treat Dad to Fathers Day Weekend on the Oregon Coast in Newport, Oregon!
We invite you to join us in celebrating our clubs 75th Anniversary.
For many years our show theme has been "Rocking the Coast", but this year Newport, Oregon will be rocking in more ways than one because Fathers Day weekend is also the 2014 Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games. Celtic Food, Dance, Music- both traditional and contemporary, and the Highland Games are taking place at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds (less than 3 blocks from the "Rocking the Coast Show") June 13, 14, 15.

Not into Celtic Music? Not to worry. Our Show site, the former Yaquina View Elementary School is only a few blocks from the Historic Bayfront of Newport. Restaurants, Art Galleries, Crafts Galleries, Ripleys Believe it or not and so much more. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g51992-d2264420-Reviews-Newport_s_Historic_Bayfront-Newport_Oregon.html
