Independence Day 2021

Get ready for a fun and busy weekend celebrating Independence Day in Lincoln City.

Are you planning to visit Lincoln City for the 4th of July weekend? Earlier in 2021, Lincoln City canceled its annual firework show. We are happy to announce the show will go on! Better yet, we’ll have two shows this year, one on the 3rd of July over Devils Lake, and one on the 4th over Siletz Bay.

4th of July

The signature fireworks on the 4th will look a little different from years past, with no daytime events to accompany them, you will still see the night sky light up in celebration of Independence Day. Fireworks will be launched from the Salishan Spit, an area where you can view from multiple locations around Siletz Bay. Watch them safely in the Historic Taft Neighborhood from your car, socially distanced on the beach, or even from your hotel, vacation rental, or home if you are able.

3rd of July

On the 3rd of July, keep your eyes peeled near Devils Lake for some nighttime fun with a stunning backdrop. Fireworks will be launched from a barge, and can easily be seen near popular lakeside spots, or better yet, from a boat on the lake.

Beyond Fireworks

Typically, Lincoln City has several events going on during our Independence Day celebration. All daytime events in Gleneden Beach have been canceled, including the annual parade. We won't have live music throughout the day near the beach in Taft, but that doesn't mean you can't bring your own entertainment.

If you're not planning to catch the fireworks over Devils Lake on the 3rd, get your ticket to the drive-in movies featuring the classic, Beetlejuice. The showing, sponsored by the Bijou Theatre, will take place a the Lincoln City Cultural Center beginning at 8:00 pm.

Stop by the Farmers and Crafters Market on the 4th from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm for handmade and homegrown goods from local sellers. Take part in, or view from the shore, a patriotic boat parade on Devils Lake beginning at 7:00 pm.

As with any other day of the year, keep a lookout for glass floats on Lincoln City's seven miles of beach as part of the year-round Finders Keepers event.

Safety First

We have you covered! With displays on both the 3rd and the 4th, there's really no need to bring your own fireworks. But, if you do, remember that not all fireworks are legal in Oregon and they are prohibited on the beach and in parks. We're having another exceptionally dry season in 2021, and our community is still recovering from the devastation of the Echo Mountain wildfire, which took place less than a year ago. Please help keep our community safe by being responsible while celebrating.

We hope to see you this Independence Day and wish you a happy, fun, and safe weekend.
