Tourism Commission

About the Commission

The Garibaldi Tourism Commission was formed by the City Council in September of 2010 to address the need of promoting tourism in Garibaldi. This commission is enabled through Section 2.55 of the Garibaldi Municipal Code.

This commission has a vision of establishing Garibaldi as the over-night anchor point for exploring Oregon’s authentic fishing village, as well as the attractions and natural scenic wonders of all of Tillamook County and the North Oregon Coast. The mission of this commission is to increase over-night stays in Garibaldi by developing a comprehensive plan for family focused tourism opportunities.

Regular meetings are generally held the 1st Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noticed. Agendas are usually available 2 to 3 business days before the meeting.
