Eureka Community Events
I’m Ed Smith, a Eureka car accident lawyer. People living in Eureka have the good fortune of living in a scenic seaside city close to some of Northern California’s most incredible forest and coasts. The area may not be as populous as other parts of the state, but Eureka still has plenty of fun events to offer visitors and residents alike. Some community events scheduled for the upcoming month are listed below.
On September 2, 2017, starting at 5 p.m., businesses and galleries in the waterfront, downtown, and old town districts of Eureka will be opening their doors to visitors for Eureka’s Arts Alive event. The event will showcase works by local artists in various styles at different locations in historic Eureka. Attendees will be able to enjoy local cuisine and wine while participating in the city’s premier cultural event.
The event will include a live arts performance at the Morris Graves Museum of Art at 7th and F Streets beginning at 6 p.m. and continuing until 9 p.m.
Some estimate Humboldt County to have more artists per capita than any other county in the state. If you attend the Arts Alive event, you are sure to see them, their work, and the many members of the arts community. Additionally, many venues will be serving free refreshments.
Steam-Up at Fort Humboldt
On the third Saturday of each month, those in the area are able to take free rides on the Bear Harbor and Falk historic steam locomotives. Attendees are encouraged to pack a lunch and spend the day in the beautiful Fort Humboldt Park overlooking the bay.

Those attending will also have the chance to visit the nearby Logging Museum and historic military fort building. The event is located at 3431 Fort Avenue, begins at 10 a.m., and goes until 4 p.m.
Humboldt Historical Lectures
On September 9, 2017, the Humboldt County Historical Society is hosting a lecture at the Eureka Public Library. The lecture, given by Jerry Rohde, will familiarize attendees with the history of the McKay Tract, which once supplied gigantic redwood logs to Eureka’s Occidental Mill and now serves as a community forest.
The lecture will take attendees back in time to when Eureka was a bustling mill city and teach them about how logs were transported on nearby sloughs to the bay area and how the McKay tract connects to the historic “Valley of the Giants.”
The event begins at 1:00 p.m. at 1313 3rd Street in Eureka. Tickets to the lecture are free and available at the door beginning at noon.
The Redwood Region Audubon Society will be conducting a free birdwalk on the local Hikshari’ Trail in South Eureka. Attendees will meet expert Ralph Bucher and walk with him along the trail while spotting birds, learning about the natural history of the area, marsh reconstruction, vagrant and migrant bird species, railroad history, Wiyot village life, and much more.
The event begins at 9 a.m. at West Del Norte and Railroad Streets.
