Bigfoot Days or Daze

We regret to announce that 2020 Bigfoot Daze scheduled for Saturday, Sept 5th, 2020 is cancelled, as of 06/15/2020. This event means a lot to our community and brings in much needed revenue for local businesses and non-profits. However, we feel we must in consider the health and safety of our community and follow the guidelines put in place by our state and local government. We plan on returning next year and hope to see everyone then.

Bigfoot Daze or Bigfoot Days is an annual festival held the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend every year in the rural community of Willow Creek, California.  

The 60th Annual Bigfoot Daze Celebration takes place on Saturday, September 5th, 2020. Bigfoot Daze has been a feature in Willow Creek for 60 years. This family-friendly community event is fun for all ages.  From the ever popular Themed Parade to the traditional Logging Contests, this event is not to be missed.

Started by a small group of locals to celebrate the logging industry, the festival has become an exceptional fund-raising opportunity for local non-profits, a wonderful showcase for local businesses, artists and vendors plus a great reason for visitors so come to our spectacularly, scenic community.   Each year,  a group of civic-minded citizens get together and host a fund-raising auction in December to fund the event. Both local and coastal Humboldt County businesses donate to this fundraiser and community members give generously.   A core group of organizers put in many hours of sweat and some tears so that the event has as many activities and as much participation as possible.  

And what about Bigfoot, the hairy Sasquatch,  he/she/it is seen around town many times on Bigfoot Daze!

Participation is the best way to donate and have fun at the same time, so join the parade, set up an activity booth, food booth, or retail booth.

Downtown Parade

Saturday Morning starts with a downtown parade at 10am where businesses, non-profits  and community members show off lots of style and creative talent.
