Show Sponsors

The Friends of the Florence Events Center, festival underwriter, thank all of our sponsors for Winter Music Festival 2019.


A special thanks goes out to this year's Presenting Sponsor, Sea Lion Caves.  Their generous support makes it possible to present the finest lineup in the history of the festival.  Be sure to either pay a visit, or just say thanks, to all of our vital sponsors.

Sea Lion Caves is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary (since 1932) centrally located just 11 miles north of Florence on the beautiful and rugged Oregon Coast. Sea Lion Caves is proud to be part of the Oregon/Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve helping to protect the local marine animals and marine environment. Sea Lion Caves is America's largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion, but sea lions are not always in the Cave. They are wild animals and we are not a zoo so these protected animals come and go as they please, as is their nature. Winter months will usually find hundreds of sea lions in the Cave and when spring arrives, breeding and birthing time, the sea lions will move from the Cave to the rookery areas (the rock ledges out in front of the Cave) and will remain there through the summer.


Art and Jean Koning (sponsors of the Saturday Night Headliners)

The Winter Music Festival extends sincerest thanks for the Konings for sponsoring the heart of the festival, the Saturday Night Headliners. 

As a couple, Art and Jean are a local powerhouse.  In addition to a history of civic involvement, they run Terrace Homes and Koning and Cooper Construction Inc.  Their winning combination includes treating each customer with respect, being considered good citizens by their customers, and they are the recipients of numerous customer service, customer satisfaction, and sales awards.  As Art and Jean like to say, at Terrace Homes, “One stop will do it all” for your next home building project. 


Waterfront Wine Store and Provisions

Marianne Brisbane is a legendary local restaurateur, and civic leader, and steadfast supporter of the Winter Music Festival.  And when it comes to choice wines, light lunch offerings, cookies, pastries, and coffee, well, Marianne has done it yet again with her Waterfront Wine Store and Provisions location at 1300 Bay Street.  As Marianne says, “Our small breakfast will get you on your way. Enjoy a ham and cheese croissant, apple turnover, morning glory muffin, or a slice of pie with a hot cup of coffee or a great cup of tea. If you're looking for something a little later, or a little heartier, try our selection of hot soups and fresh sandwiches made by Le Bouchon. For those who desire the flavor of the Pacific Northwest wrapped in old world tradition, our cheese and charcuterie plate is the just-right choice. Would you prefer to keep it light and healthy? Our fresh salads are made with greens grown in our very own Riverfront Garden, absolutely the freshest you'll find unless you're picking from your own garden. We have an amazing selection of wines that you will not find at your local grocer. Enjoy local, regional, and wines from around the world in our shop by the glass or by the bottle. Our straightforward approach to good food and great wine ensures you enjoy the best quality Florence has to offer. We look forward to seeing you soon.”  And while you are at it, be sure to visit Mariann’s other nearby location, Le Bouchon Wine Bar and Provisions, for unique luncheon and dinner offerings, located at 1277 Bay Street.

International C-Food Market Restaurant

Welcome to International C-Food Market Restaurant, also referred to as ICM's unique seafood restaurant. Owner Ramiro Ramirez, with the help of many local contractors, has built the newest and most exciting seafood restaurant on the Oregon coast - right here in Old Town Florence, overlooking the Siuslaw River. The restaurant was built from the water up in only eight months, and opened on July 20, 1993. Every detail was carefully thought out. A relatively unknown local artist, Mark Storaasli, who we were fortunate to discover, created the unique murals on the outside and inside of the restaurant. His work certainly demonstrates his unusual style and quality as a true artist. The Neptune wood sculpture was created by local artist Dylan James from a piece of big leaf maple was dedicated by to the Port of Siuslaw in recognition of the importance of the present and past fisherman.

Florence Golf Links

Nestled amidst wind swept sand dunes and towering pines, Florence Golf Links is a breathtaking location for coastal golf. The Rees Jones designed course was honored as the “Best New Public Course in America” in 1993. As one of the premier courses in the Northwest, Florence Golf Links received a 4½ star rating from Golf Digest’s list of “Places to Play in the USA.”

Florence Golf Links is centrally located on the Oregon Dunes. Just 60 miles west of Eugene and 70 miles north of Bandon, Florence Golf Links offers a mild coastal climate and year-round playing conditions, perfect for golfers traveling the Oregon coast, or those looking to escape the foggy cold mornings of the Willamette Valley.

The par 72, 6,931-yard course is a true test of the game to golfers of all levels. Both nines incorporate the beautifully rugged canvas that is the Central Oregon Coast. The outward nine is sculpted out of a forest of towering pines and majestic crystal blue lakes reminiscent of those found on the Monterey Peninsula. The inward nine brings you back to the soul of the game with its traditional Links style and rolling dunes from tee to green.

Diverse wildlife make their home in and around Florence Golf Links.  Frequent sightings include deer, geese, ducks and ducklings, sandpipers, blue heron, crane, bald eagles, osprey and, infrequently, black bear and coyote. Bring a camera and you will get some great pictures.

Our 9,000 square foot clubhouse is home to "The Grill & Lounge," the centerpiece of our facility, featuring breathtaking views of the golf course and fresh, local cuisine. The Golf Shop offers the latest in golf equipment, apparel, and accessories for both men and women.
