The last weekend in July in the coastal town of Garibaldi is for the annual Garibaldi Days weekend celebration. There is a parade on Saturday through the main stretch of town starting at 11AM. The park area will be filled with vendors selling local crafts, wares, and foods. There will be live music playing at the food court area at S. Sixth Street and Garibaldi Avenue.
There is always tons of family fun activities, this year is no exception. There will be a fishing tank, gokarts, a Gyro ride, and other shows for the kids near the Lumbermen’s park. There is also a Fireworks display on Saturday night over the harbor. The train rides go back and forth between Garibaldi and the Rockaway Beach wayside, this is a fun way to see the scenic bay as you pass by the Three Graces and the barview jetty. Stop in Rockaway to check out the fun shops or walk on the sand and ride the train back later in the day.
Come enjoy this local festival for a good Oregon coast time. Stop and buy a crab or tuna from some of the local fisherman for a seafood dinner.
