Belle of the Redwoods

2019 Belle Entry Form

New! The Belle Ball

The winning Belle will be crowned at the Belle Ball held Sunday evening from 7-11 at Eagles Hall! Entry is only $5 per person and features DJ music and a Photo Station from GroundLoop Sound!! The Belle Ball is an event for ages 14 and up. ID required for purchase of wine or beer.

The Belle of the Redwoods competition is nearly as old as Paul Bunyan Days itself and has become a favorite tradition of the residents of Fort Bragg! It is not a beauty contest. Contestants compete by dressing in “old fashioned” or theme appropriate dress and selling raffle tickets throughout the month of August.

Each Belle contestant earns 10% of her ticket sales, and the top 3 Belle contestants also win cash bonuses!

The proceeds from the sale of the raffle tickets benefits the Paul Bunyan Scholarship which is awarded to a Mendocino Coast local pursuing higher education in Forestry or Logging associated fields. 

If you’d like to support our Belle’s please find one and buy a ticket! Each ticket costs only $5 or buy 5 tickets for $20!
