Time for an end of summer community celebration! Enjoy a noontime parade through downtown Elk, followed by carnival, greased pole climbing, watermelon-eating contests, silent auction, cake raffle, and more. No-host bar, fresh-pressed cider, and abundant food options along with an evening dinner and dance.
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.
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.
Visit beautiful Mendocino County for wine, redwoods and the spectacular Northern California coast. Ride the historic Skunk Train, explore Glass Beach, bike and hike the scenic windswept coast, and explore the ancient redwood forests.
