St. Maries Paul Bunyan Days 2023

Paul Bunyan Days is a 4-day celebration of our logging history in Saint Maries, Idaho. This festival has been held on Labor Day Weekend since 1968. We have a great variety of food and craft vendors, a carnival (Paradise Amusements), logging and water events, Tug-of-War contest, Quilt Show, Demolition Derby at the Benewah County Fairgrounds, the largest fireworks display in the Northwest, Parade and free entertainment throughout the weekend. The attendance for the 4 day celebration is estimated at 27,000 people, we don’t charge for parking or admission to the park for any of our events. This is totally a family fun weekend! Please leave your pets at home, as animals are prohibited in the park. 

Logging Events will be on Sunday September 3rd, following the Auction.
