Eureka, Northern California’s Cultural Hub, Announces Action-Packed Fun for July 4th Weekend (EUREKA, Calif.)

The city of Eureka is celebrating the Fourth of July
with five days of festivities! Kicking off Thursday, June 30, the city will offer a variety of
activities and celebratory events in and around the historic Old Town and Waterfront
district. Visitors to the city’s distinctive Victorian corridor, an officially designated
California Cultural Arts District listed on the National Register of Historic places, will
enjoy free live music performances, open-air markets, distinctive boutique shopping,
museums and theaters, farm-to-table restaurants, a local carnival and more.
In this little city on the bay, one that lives not-so-quietly behind the Redwood Curtain, it’s
not uncommon to stumble unexpectedly across belly dancers, speeder cars, or a rock
and roll concert. But this Fourth of July weekend, there will be even more activity than
• Thursday night, a free summer concert will feature the four-piece rock band
Beatz Werkin

• Friday, The Eureka Friday Night Market, hosted by Humboldt Made and the
North Coast Growers Association, is back to celebrate the authentic flavors of the
summer’s local produce and the area’s finest local arts and crafts
• Saturday morning, there’s a chance for visitors to see even more of the town as
they give back with PacOut Green Team’s volunteer community clean-up effort
along one of Eureka’s many scenic trails
• Saturday afternoon and evening, Eureka’s proud collection of museums,
theaters, and galleries will open-up during Arts Alive! – a celebrated monthly
event that showcases the best of Eureka to locals and visitors alike
• On Sunday, visitors are encouraged to book a ride on the Historic Madaket Ferry
for a tour of the Historic Humboldt Bay or head over to the Sequoia Park Zoo to
visit the Redwood Sky Walk and see some of the world’s tallest trees from more
than 100ft above the forest floor
• On Monday July 4, visitors can take a ride in a mini refurbished rail car and then
follow an old timber route through the city, courtesy of the Timber Heritage
Association before they join with friends and family to celebrate the holiday with
live music, art vendors, and craft foods along Eureka’s beautiful Humboldt Bay
• Of course, the day will end with epic fireworks overlooking Humboldt Bay
“We are extremely excited to see our city roaring back to life after the stillness of more
than two years of pandemic shutdowns. Our community is known for its celebratory
spirit and this July fourth, we won’t disappoint,” City Manager Miles Slattery said. “With
all Eureka has to offer, it’s no wonder that California Beaches and Slyde handboards
ranked our community as one of the top ten beaches to view Fourth of July fireworks
this year. Technically, our beach is across the Bay, but we’re taking the honors either
