Paul Bunyan Days

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.
