Arcata's Oyster Festival

"If you love oysters like I love oysters...."
Ain't nothin' like these oysters on a sun drenched afternoon on the Arcata Plaza. Oysters and beer, oysters and chilled Sauvignon Blanc, oysters grilled then drenched in garlic butter, oysters and chocolate. Any way you like 'em. Of course it's not just oysters. There's live music, and all the Plaza characters you've come to know and love or at least like to watch.

Kinetic thingamajig Race

Re-named a bunch of times, copied by others and fought-over by various groups since founder Hobart Brown left his kinetic energy to others to figure out, this is still the best and mostly original kinetic contraption race in the country. It has no social value and it has lost some of its magic to middle age, but it retains a certain sense of zany, "who cares what anybody thinks, we're gonna do it anyway." feeling. It starts in Arcata and takes however long it takes to get to Ferndale where, if the machine is still moving, it parades down Main Street. And that's it.

Pony Express Days

Pony Express Days, established in 1968, is a celebration of old west skills and traditions. Five days of events including a cook-off, fireman's muster, Pony Express dance, a parade and horse shoe tournament. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear and enjoy the competition and display of equestrian skills. Don't miss the gymkhana on the weekend. It all happens in McKinleyville, where horses still have the right-of-way.
