Friday & Saturday of Gorse Blossom Festival

Brewmaker Dinners Throughout Town

A long weekend of beer, wine, seafood, and films

Beautiful Bandon-by-the-Sea hosts it's first-ever Gorse Blossom Festival over Valentine's week!  This festival is all about craft beers, wineries, Brewmaker Dinners, Winemaker Dinners, and the Oregon Coast Film Festival. In a joint effort between the Greater Bandon Association and Bandon Chamber of Commerce, as well as our community's restaurateurs, merchants, and non-profit organizations, Bandon brings you three days of fun-filled festival activities.  All three days of our festival include concessionnaires for food, wine, beer, and more.  On Friday and Saturday, enjoy screenings of the Oregon Coast Film Festival entries in Old Town Bandon.  After the festival on Friday and Saturday, walk through Old Town and enjoy Winemaker, and Brewmaker Dinners at select Old Town Bandon restaurants.  Saturday, the gate opens at the Gorse Blossom Festival grounds, where 40+ vendors provide delectable food and drink for festival guests. Sunday, Bandon hosts it's Bloody Mary Morning Stroll - where every step brings you a new ingredient of that hair-of-the dog Bloody Mary.  

The Oregon Coast Film Festival has partnered with Gorse Blossom Festival to bring you films from northwest artists on the Port of Bandon Waterfront Shelter.  Join us!
