Local Brookings Events
Oregon’s southern most Port is located on the Pacific Ocean just south of Brookings a few miles north of the Oregon-California border; an area known for its mild climate and natural beauty. Located at the mouth of the Chetco River, it has one of the safest entries to the ocean on the west coast. It’s a sportsman’s paradise and a photographer’s dream. Year round ocean fishing for snapper, salmon and albacore tuna as well as three world class rivers within minutes provide outstanding angling and recreational boating. The Port is a working Port with a fleet of commercial vessels that fish for Dungeness crab, tuna, snapper and shrimp. These catches are off loaded daily on our commercial dock systems and are an important element of our overall economy.
If visiting Brookings Oregon Labor Day, don’t miss the nationally acclaimed, Labor Day Slam’n Salmon Ocean Derby,” a three day Salmon sport fishing event of the year.
The Saturday Farmer’s Market on close to the Harbor on Hwy 101 a cornucopia of fresh locally grown produce and many fine crafts produced by local artists.
