About the Event

This weekend getaway combines luxury accommodations with the lively cultural experience known as the Fisherpoets Gathering! We’ll travel to Astoria, Oregon for one night at the historic Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa. Experience the mighty Columbia from the comfort of your room in this luxury boutique hotel that offers guests unparalleled views. The hotel is lavishly appoint-ed with unique amenities such as an authentic Finnish sauna, full service day spa, hors d’oeuvres in the lobby and continental breakfast. You can even arrange a complimentary chauffeur into town to the venue of your choice for the evening’s festivities.

The Fisherpoet’s Gathering, attracts poets, songwriters and story-tellers from fishing communities across the nation. They gather in the pubs, restaurants, theaters and galleries to read for each other and the hundreds of fans who come to hear these authentic creative voices. You’ll get a full pass to the festival so you can experience all the poetry, storytelling and music you want. Friday we will stop at the Carriage Museum on the way south and have lunch together in Astoria followed by some free time to explore. Friday night the town comes alive with performances in multiple venues, and you’ll have more time in town Saturday before heading home.
