 Lincoln City is the perfect getaway to celebrate your 4th of July weekend hosting many beloved annual traditions for the whole family to enjoy.  

Family-friendly events to enjoy July 4th: 

Enjoy three nights of ALL AGES drink, food, and live music at the Holiday Weekend Fest concert hosted by Rusty Truck Brewing. The concerts will be from 7pm – 9pm, and the schedule includes Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC Tribute on July 2nd, Petty Fever – Tom Petty Tribute on July 3rd, and Stone in Love – Journey Tribute on July 4th. Sing and dance the night away as you take a walk down memory lane with these legendary rock cover bands. 

Start your July 4th weekend festivities with a bang with the annual fireworks display at Devil’s Lake on July 3rd. The display is scheduled to begin at 9:30pm (or dusk), and will not be visible from Regatta Park, but Brown Bear State Park and Sandpoint Park are recommended locations to enjoy the spectacular show!  

Continue your Independence Day celebrations in the Historic Taft District of Lincoln City on July 4th with live music beginning at 11am. Enjoy exploring the shops, the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, the Lincoln City Glass Center, and the Taft Waterfront Park and Bay.  

Make sure and stop by Mo’s Restaurant for a bowl of their famous clam chowder. If the line is too long, place an order to go and enjoy some fresh seafood with a view on the shore of Siletz Bay right in front of Mo’s, or back at your Meredith Lodging rental where you can relax in preparation for the night’s main attractions.  

In the evening, head to Devils Lake to enjoy a patriotic boat parade starting at 7:00pm and save the best for last with an impressive and colorful firework display over Taft Waterfront Park set to start at 10/10:30pm. 


Personal fireworks are not permitted in Lincoln City this year. Please leave them at home and enjoy the amazing display over Siletz Bay instead. Fireworks are not permitted in parks or on Oregon beaches. Keep it legal. Keep it safe.
