Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament

Thursday, August 8th, 2019 kicks off the 38th annual Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament in Seaside, Oregon. The event is now the world’s largest amateur beach volleyball tournament with over 1,640 teams playing in 2018. Last year, the Seaside beach held 163 courts and over 4,300 scheduled matches on the shore of the mighty Pacific Ocean. Sponsored by the likes of Michelob Ultra, Clatsop Distributing, Wilson and more it is sure to be another great year. Seaside Beach Volleyball also recently announced their newest partnership with AVP Pro, and AVP Next, both of which are divisions of AVP Pro Beach Volleyball – the longest standing and most well known American beach volleyball organization. AVP is famous for facilitating national tournaments, developing new talent, invigorating communities through sport, and promoting a beach volleyball lifestyle across the United States. You can learn more about AVP and their mission here.


Founded in 1981, the Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament was originally started by a local lifeguard that wanted to raise money for a new lifeguard stand. The tournament has now grown so large it surpassed the Mizuno Beach Volleyball Marathon, held in Italy, which was previously thought to be the worlds largest beach volleyball tournament. With the amount of growth happening each year, tournament organizers had to switch all bracket boards to a mobile app in 2017 to allow for easier access as they traditionally used whiteboards to notify players. Participants can now see when they play, which court they play on, etc. allowing them to step away from the beach when their schedule allows to explore Seaside, grab a bite to eat, or rest. As always, the main court, usually packed with fans on the sidelines, will be situated in front of the Seaside Turnaround. The final men and women teams standing will battle it out for cash prizes, and the coveted title of Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament champions.    


Tournament officials say the tournament has grown considerably over the years and will continue to do so – as long as there is no shortage of players or nets. The Seaside Beach Volleyball tournament brings thousands of competitors from all over the world to the small beach town of Seaside, Oregon located in the Pacific Northwest corner of the United States. With just over 6,000 residents and a total size of 4.1 sq. miles, Seaside is filled to the brim with visitors from all across the world over the four-day tournament. Seaside Beach Volleyball tournament divisions range from Pro/Semi-Pro all the way down to entry-level/intermediate players.

Long Term Houses For Rent In Seaside Oregon

Seaside Rentals

If you live anywhere near the NW Oregon Coast, you know that it is quickly becoming one of the top sought after places to live in the Pacific Northwest – specifically the Seaside and Astoria areas. While this is no surprise to those of us that are lucky enough to live here already, it is still shocking to see just how fast our small communities are growing. With the surge of newcomers comes a housing shortage across the county. Homelessness rates are rising, and more housing is going up faster than ever while developers try to cash in on the population influx, and simply try to get enough housing available for those already here, and those that are still to come. While you’ll find no shortage of beach houses and vacation homes, local real estate is coming in short on rentals in the area.

County Wide Shortage

Seaside is undeniably one of the most popular vacation destinations in the state of Oregon. In addition to the vast nature that surrounds it, it is centrally located just 90-minutes away from downtown Portland and located within a 20-minute drive to other popular cities like Astoria, Cannon Beach, and Lincoln City. These are just a couple of the things that make the area such a popular location for those looking to relocate. With plenty of job opportunity, a big craft beer/brewery scene, and an all-around great community, it is not hard to see why Clatsop County is growing more rapidly than ever. Unfortunately, the number of rental properties (aside from some newly developed apartments) is not growing along with our population. Apartments and houses, studio apartments, and other home types are some of the most sought after rentals in the area.

While some may argue, the only downside we see to our growth is the overall lack of affordable housing and housing in general. As mentioned before, developers are quickly securing land and constructing new complexes, but there simply isn’t enough to go around for the time being. While our local real estate market is booming, median house prices are at an all-time high. Places, or land for sale, are being listed and sold within a matter of days or weeks, and not everyone can afford the hefty price tag, and high mortgage rates that come with purchasing. That is why having more rentals available in the area is an important piece of our growth as a community. At this rate, even relocating to a nearby city doesn’t guarantee your chances of finding a place.

Finding a Rental

While coming by places to rent in the area is becoming more scarce, that does not mean it is impossible. Knowing local property managers, or those with investment properties surely helps, it is simply not enough to secure housing in this competitive market. Here on, we hope to help those looking for housing by posting updated listings, as well as give owners/landlords the opportunity to post their available housing on our site. If you would like to submit your rentals, please fill out our “help” form via our contact page. We will contact you as soon as possible to gather all of your listings information. If you are thinking of or planning on moving to the area, leave a comment below describing your needs and we will do our best to connect you with housing in the area.

New Times Theater In Seaside Oregon

Times Theater and Public House

After showing its last film in 1989, the Times Theater has reopened after renovating to include a modern day twist. The Times Theater building is one of Seaside’s most historical sites, and is most popularly known for the large vintage mural that it once dawned. The paint that covers the once exquisite mural caused quite the stir-up between locals, and it left many hopeful that it would make a comeback in some shape or form. And after almost 30 years of being used for storage, the once Seaside staple had to undergo some major renovations to be brought back to life.  

Still standing in its original spot on the corner of Columbia and Broadway, this Seaside classic is now known as the Times Theater and Public House. Now, in addition to watching second-run movies, you can catch a Ducks game or sip on one of their house brewed SISU beers. In addition to the beer they brew in house, they have wine, guest beer taps, cider, and a full menu to order from.

The theater dawns large, comfy chairs with pull-out tables to accommodate your food and drinks. When ordering off of the pub menu, table service is available for the downstairs theater seats and the larger sit-down tables near the bar. You can order food and concessions or even grab some classic Phillips Candy from the front counter to take with you to the upstairs balcony seating.  

The interior pays homage to the original theater, leaving the seat layout in tact as well as the unique shape of the building. Where there once was a movie screen is now 6 large brewing tanks, multiple SISU kegs, and other beer brewing equipment. When it’s time to watch a game or movie, they simply pull down the silver screen where the showings can be digitally projected. While there were undoubtedly some major renovations, the new owners did an incredible job of keeping the classic look while tying in the sports bar-esque pub.

The Times Theater and Public House is still open for restaurant service outside of movie showings. The menu is extensive and full of classic pub favorites making for a fun new spot to hang out and grab a bite to eat. They plan to host events, live entertainment, and show other popular sporting events in addition to football. Their current weekly schedule is as follows:



Monday: Monday Night Football

Tuesday & Wednesday: Movie at 7pm

Thursday: Thursday Night Football –  Movie at 9pm

Friday: Movie at 9pm

Saturday: College Football

Sunday: NFL –  Movie at 9pm
