Paul Bunyan Days

Paul Bunyan Days

Time for the 76th Annual Paul Bunyan Days! Paul 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.


Winesong Charity Auction & Grand Tasting

Start the day with a Grand Tasting featuring up to 100 wineries, breweries, and distilleries, as well as delectable bites from culinary masters around the County. Sip and savor as you stroll the beautiful Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens – the backdrop for this annual event.

Abalone Fest

World Championship Abalone Cook-Off

Attending the World Championship Abalone Cook-Off as a competing cook or a tasting judge is a fun and exciting way for people to help MAPA support Mendocino County parks. This event sells out every year so be sure to get your tickets before it’s too late!
