Bigfoot Jamboree (Happy Camp)
Bigfoot Jamboree has been a big part of the Happy Camp community for 52 years! Every Labor Day Weekend, the community, both past and present, comes together for this three day event. Festivities start on Friday night with the Bigfoot Queen Coronation and Raffle Drawing. The fun continues with a dance featuring a live DJ. Saturday is filled with various events from Kids Day to a softball tournament to a talent show. The party gets started again on Saturday night with a live band. On Sunday morning, the main streets of Happy Camp are lined with residents and visitors, all gathering for the big Parade. Theme-decorated floats, fire engines, performers and Bigfoot himself comprise the parade throwing candy to children eagerly waiting.
Bigfoot Jamboree is planned and produced each year by the Happy Camp Coordinating Council. Formed in 1994, the council is a non-profit group of Happy Camp community volunteers. These volunteers organize, promote and execute the event.
