2017 Haystack Holiday festivities wind-down in Cannon Beach with The Trail Band in concert December 27.

The Trail Band will perform a holiday concert on December 27, 2017 in the intimate setting of the Coaster Theatre as a finale to the community's annual Haystack Holidays festivities. The Trail Band is an eight-piece ensemble that has performed in hundreds of appearances across America and Japan. With a blend of brass and string arrangements of traditional and original music featuring five vocalists, including Rindy Ross of Quarterflash, the band has become a Northwest favorite. They've earned a list of awards including the 1998 Meritorious Achievement Award by the Oregon-California Trails Association and a 1999 Alumni Award of Excellence from Western Oregon University, The Trail Band is known for weaving together an upbeat mix of music, history and humor into their performances.

Additional events happening in Cannon Beach between Christmas and New Year's include the town's Holiday Foods Around the World restaurant celebration, December 26-29. Cannon Beach restaurants will participate in the global cuisine event with each location offering specials inspired by their chosen country. That week is also Oregon State Parks' winter whale watch program that features interpreters at Ecola State Park to help visitors spot Gray Whales on their winter migration, December 27-31. Visitors to Cannon Beach during this time can also take advantage of lower room rates.

Tickets to The Trail Band concert are priced at $39 each and can be purchased by calling Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce at (503) 436-2623 or online at
