Humboldt’s hairy hominid returns for a festive homecoming to the town where his legend began.
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. It is one of the oldest local festivals in Humboldt County.
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!
