Coffenbury Lake & Astoria 2
Liberty Theater—just took a shot at this time
“Music, dance, theatre, and one magnificent chandelier.” You can rent it for your event, too. I called ahead to check on accessibility, and was told it is accessible. For events and tickets, see https://libertyastoria.org/
Other Arts venues are the Astor Street Opry Company http://asocplay.com/ , and
Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center (PAC) https://partnersforthepac.org/
Flavel House—not wheelchair accessible, but the exterior is worth seeing if you can’t go in. 441 8th St.
