The All Species Parade is on Saturday at 1pm & the Samba Parade is on Sunday at 1pm.

The 50th North Country Fair takes place at the Arcata Plaza. This free and family-friendly festival features 170 art and craft vendors, three music and entertainment stages, local food booths, activities for kids, and a daily parade at 1 pm. Bring your two-legged friends and families, but please leave your dogs and pets at home.

The All Species Parade will take place on Saturday, led by the Arcata Playhouse. Dress up in your favorite animal, creature, or species costume and join in on the fun!

The Annual Samba Parade led by Samba da Alegria will take place on Sunday at 1 pm and, as always, promises to be a highlight of the Fair. The weekend will showcase over 20 live local acts including a full schedule of dancers and entertainers.

The North Country Fair has been leading the way in zero waste event efforts, inspiring other events locally and regionally to join the reusable and refillable revolution.  We ask that you help by bringing your own pint cup for beer, a refillable bottle for water, and refrain from bringing in waste from off-site. All items are sorted and weighed, so please take small trash items generated by your own family, like diapers and gum wrappers, back home with you.

Please leave your dogs at home.
