2021 Christmas & Holiday Events in Lincoln City

With a brisk wind and some snowy seafoam, Christmastime in Lincoln City holds plenty of cozy adventure for the winter wanderer.

Celebrate the Holidays

It’s Christmas every day at the Christmas Cottage in Lincoln City. Decked with two Santa Clauses scaling the roof and side of the building, the inside boasts thousands of unique Christmas ornaments and decorations. Discover your next great gift to hang on your tree.

Many local Lincoln City churches and businesses host bazaars during the holiday season—fun pop up markets that sell everything imaginable—from artisanal honey to handcrafted jewelry to local antiques. Bring your curiosity and start hunting. Follow our Events Calendar to see upcoming bazaars.

The Jolly Old Elf has been spotted many times enjoying the beaches of Lincoln City and can be found at local events during Christmastime.
