Seaside, Oregon Beach Events

Entertain on the Edge of the Ocean

There is no more beautiful Oregon event venue than being outside, surrounded by nature. The Best Western Ocean View Resort is privileged to be the only facility in Seaside that is licensed to provide catering services on the beach. Imagine setting up games on the sand for a family reunion or retreat, a bonfire with hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows and singing along the shore! These are memories that will not soon be forgotten. And how about that most magical of all events – the wedding ceremony. Is there a more perfect setting than one with the sounds of the ocean in the background?

Beach Event Guidelines

While events on the beach can be beautiful and memorable, these type of functions do pose their own set of challenges. To ensure your satisfaction and to adhere to regulations from the Oregon Parks Department and the City of Seaside, the Best Western Ocean View Resort has specific guidelines for beachfront events.   

Permits: All group gatherings must have a permit. To insure adherence to guidelines, the Best Western Ocean View Resort will handle securing the permits for beach events. The permit fee is included in the beach set-up fee.

Hours of Use: The allotted hours for beachfront use are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Any materials scheduled for delivery, installation and pick up must be arranged within this time frame. Permit fees listed above are for one day. If multiple days are required for set-up and delivery, extra fees will be due to the state and city agencies.

Noise: Out of respect to our guests and neighbors, amplified music must end by 9:00 p.m. with the event conclusion no later than 10:00 p.m. All noise/music must be in compliance with the City of Seaside noise ordinances and is subject to Seaside Police Department jurisdiction.

Set-Up Fees: (All prices are subject to 19% service charge)

Your catering representative can assist you with tent rental.

Inclement Weather:Coastal weather is unpredictable and consideration should be given to an inclement weather plan. Arrangements can be made to secure one of the Ocean View Resort's event rooms. Talk with your catering representative about these arrangements.
