Humboldt’s hairy hominid returns for a festive homecoming to the town where his legend began.

Bigfoot Daze has been a feature in Willow Creek for over 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.  

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.

Ice Cream Social

The Willow Creek – China Flat Museum hosts an ice-cream social after the parade.


Veterans Park is full of food, retail vendors, live music and activities including:

Softball Tournament

Horseshoe Tournament

Adult and Kids Bikes Games

Bigfoot Call Contest

Watermelon Eating Contest
