The Man in Plaid

Fort Bragg has been hosting Paul Bunyan Days for 80 years, ever since the era when lumberjacking and logging were a critical coastal industry. Its current iteration has a log rolling tournament and logging show at its core but offers many non-lumberjacking activities, too. These include a gem and mineral show, a classic car show, a craft fair, and, under the Big Top next to Mendocino College, a performance of the Flynn Creek Circus. There are also special activities for the younger set, such as tricycle races, children’s games, and a kiddie parade. This year’s festivities will be held August 30–September 2. See for times and venues of events. Go to to purchase circus tickets, which are $11–$50.
