Welcome to Explore Del Norte

Events Category

There are lots of great events in Del Norte County, California. We celebrate the fruits of the sea with crab feeds all winter long. Delicious! Make Crescent City your base-camp for exploring our natural beauty from the summit to the seashore.  Birding is a big in Del Norte year-round. The Redwood Forests are gathering places that draw people to experience the awesome power of our natural surroundings. Come for a car show, don’t miss the County Fair and bring your kayak and try a race on one of our beautiful rivers.
