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. In June of 2019, the City Council passed Ordinance No. 329 revamping the structure of the Tourism Commission and amending the original Ordinance No. 317.

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. You can also download the mission and vision statement.

If you are interested in working with this commission, volunteering to further its goals, or simply learning more, please contact Laura Schmidt, Tourism/Events Specialist, at (503)974-8581 or email laura@ci.garibaldi.or.us.
