Named for the bigger-than-life logger and his giant blue ox, the festival celebrates the history of the community and pays tribute to the strength of the people who live here. The theme this year is “All Aboard! Fort Bragg to Willits with Paul & Babe” to commemorate 100 years of riding the Skunk from Fort Bragg to Willits.
Paul Bunyan hosts the festival live and in person. When you see him say hello and ask him to pose for a picture. He’s everywhere – at the action-packed contests, community parades, reviews, shows and fairs. He also crowns the Belle of the Redwoods and makes certain Kangaroo Kort doesn’t get too rowdy.
Whew… when does he sleep?
Paul Bunyan Days is family friendly, packed with free (or almost free) activities so everyone can come. The Paul Bunyan Days Association organizes it, community sponsors pay for it, and volunteers make it happen.
