Once a year, the magic of Pixie Kitchen and Pixieland reappears in Lincoln City. However, this year our Pixies are going to stay home and stay safe.
Pixiefest brings back the fun, food, shows, games & memories of the most amazing family attractions to ever grace the Oregon Coast.
We’ll be back to do it again. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and announcements.
Bounce House Village
When one is good a whole lot is best, right? We’re finalizing a deal on a whole village of bounce houses that’ll let you bounce, slide, jump and explore.
If you were lucky enough to go to Pixie Kitchen or Pixieland as a child, you’ll love our collection of Pixie memorabilia. Pixiefest hosts a gathering of Pixie collectors who will be on hand to display original Pixie Kitchen cutout characters, an original Pixie Kitchen table, authentic items from the Pixie Kitchen gift shop, plus a surprise or two.
Fun & Games
Test your skill and win prizes along the Pixie Midway.
Pixie Kitchen is the place for Pixie Kitchen food. The Lincoln City Culinary Center did amazing detective work tracking down original Pixie Kitchen recipes (which are published in the Pixie Kitchen Cookbook that’s for sale at Pixiefest and also at the newLincoln City Kiwanis online store.)
Enjoy a big selection of original Pixie Kitchen menu items, plus lots of modern favorites, too.
As Jerry Parks used to say, no one leaves hungry.
Plenty of Pixies
Keep an eye out for roving bands of fun-loving Pixies, Pixie Mermaids and other Pixie menu characters brought to life.
In 1948, a tiny restaurant called called Pixie Kitchen® opened its doors in Wecoma Beach, one of the five towns that would combine to become Lincoln City, Oregon. It was purchased in 1952 by Jerry and Lu Parks, who transformed it into a children’s wonderland. Pixie Kitchen was something never seen before, with animatronics, fun house mirrors and all-you-can-eat family meals. It was a must-see attraction for over 30 years and remains a treasured part of childhood for thousands of people. We’re happy to bring it back every year so the magic can be relived and shared.
The ongoing success of Pixie Kitchen, with its legions of pixie cooks, fishermen, railroad engineers, sea creatures, balloonists, mermaids and sea captains inspired the creation of Pixielandsm, a theme park just north of Lincoln City. Pixieland opened its gates in 1969 and enjoyed its last season just seven years later. In the meantime, guests rode Little Toot the steam engine, took thrilling rides on the log flume and enjoyed a multitude of melodramas in the Opera House.
Pixiefest is all about preserving and sharing memories of Pixie Kitchen and Pixieland. If you were fortunate enough to experience either, please consider sharing your stories with us. You can contribute to the Pixie Memories Oral History Project via the Pixiefest page on Facebook. Upload a selfie video telling us about your memories. These are being collected and archived by the North Lincoln County Historical Museum.

Lincoln City Pixies
Some of you may think that the Pixies packed up and left town when Pixie Kitchen® closed its doors. Turns out we have lots and lots of Pixies still here happy to help make Pixiefest happen. Many thanks to the Pixies at Taft high School who graciously offered to host the event. To all of our Pixie sponsors and a host of other Pixies volunteers who make the festival happen.
