Festival of Illusions Returns

Illusions and tricks will have you spellbound during the Festival of Illusions in Lincoln City this month. For two weeks, immerse yourself in a world of wonder. Every evening from March 20th – 24th, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center will feature a different professional magician or illusionist.

The Festival of Illusions delivers weather-proof family shows and workshops to spring break on the Oregon coast. This year’s schedule will include live, in-person performances by Craig Martin, Brian Ledbetter, and Kameron Messner along with Dr. Delusion’s Illusions and Capt. Squirrel the Pirate Magician.

This year’s COVID-safe festival activities will also include creative Abracadabra Magic and Art Kits, offered for easy pickup, with all materials and instructions included. A balloon-twisting workshop is offered on Monday and matinee shows on Tuesday and Thursday.

March's Special Drop

It wouldn't be a good Spring Break at the beach without a Finders Keepers Special Drop! Between March 19 and April 3rd, float fairies will be very busy dropping 200 extra floats on the beach for lucky treasure hunters to stumble upon. Please remember that floats are hidden between the high tide line and the beach embankment, and not in difficult places to find such as beachgrass or dangerous locations to get to. Help us preserve our coastline by staying off the vegetation and respecting wildlife.

Head to Chinook Winds Casino and Resort

The Casino has a lot going on this March. Start out by watching the UFC Fight on March 5, on four giant screens with a no-host bar. Then be sure to book your calendars for a few nights of laughs, with Late Night Comedy shows on March 18th and 19th. The headliner, known as Uncle Lar’, is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. You'll enjoy him (Larry Reeb), Nick Hoof, and Todd Armstrong for a fun-filled night.


CWCR also hosts an exciting Spring Break Party on March 26th. Bring your friends and your dancing shoes because DJ Metal will be spinning music for you to groove to all night long.
