Paul Bunyan Days
Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Logging Contest

Two-man Saw Contest

Four Fun-Filled Days on Labor Day Weekend! The tale of Paul Bunyan and his blue ox has always been a favorite with the kids, but here in Fort Bragg, we celebrate the real thing! Paul Bunyan hosts the festival, which celebrates the long history of logging on the Mendocino Coast. This year’s theme,  “All Aboard! Fort Bragg to Willits with Paul & Babe,” commemorates 100 years of the Skunk Train line running from Fort Bragg to Willits. Join us for the fun with logging contests, parades, and the highlight – the crowning of the Belle of the Redwoods, a long-standing tradition.

Abundance of Color at the Gardens
Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Photo by Dennis Freeze

This is one of my favorite times of the year at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens — when the dahlias and fuchsias are in bloom. Plus, Friends of the Garden’s display artists created birdhouses for their annual auction, and I can guarantee you’ll be delighted with the creativity of these artists. You can leave a bid on your favorite birdhouse or “Buy It Now”. But don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Artist Reception and final bid night on August 19th…a guaranteed fun evening with friends, food and wine…and all for the Gardens we love. Open daily 9am – 5 pm, 18220 N. Highway One, Fort Bragg. 707-964-4352

The Pavilion Open This Weekend
Monday, July 25th, 2011

Special preview nights on 7/28 & 7/29 for ONLY $10

The Mendocino Theatre Company in association with Harvest Market/Harvest at Mendosa’s proudly present “The Pavilion” by Craig Wright, Directed by Kennedy White

“This is the way the universe begins.” With those words, the Narrator of The Pavilion, like the Stage Manager in Our Town, takes the audience on a ride through the past, the present, and the future, introducing us to Peter and Kari, former high school sweethearts on the night of a high school reunion. Their past is broken. Can it be mended? Can time ever be coaxed into running backwards? The Pavilion is a sweepingly romantic modern classic. The Pavilion staring Van Phillips, Jodi Britton and Dan Kozloff, plays Thurs – Sat @ 8:00 pm with 2:00 matinees on Sunday 7/31, 8/28, and 9/4 at the Helen Schoeni Theatre on the grounds of the Mendocino Art Center. For tickets or more information, please contact the box office at: 707-937-4477 or
