A festival at Veteran's Park in Willow Creek is being hosted by Animal Planet's hit TV Series "Finding Bigfoot" in cooperation with the Willow Creek Chamber of Commerce on April 29th. This event is open to the public and free.
The "Finding Bigfoot" cast -- Cliff Barackman, James "Bobo" Fay, Matt Moneymaker and Ranae Holland -- will be in attendance as will special guest Bob Gimlin from the Patterson-Gimlin Film (PGF) fame. The group will speak with guests and review the PGF footage in the VFW Hall adjacent to the festival and discuss the historical film that made Willow Creek the "Bigfoot Capital of the World."
Bigfoot enthusiasts and locals are expected to flock to this one-time-only event, which is modeled after the town's annual Bigfoot Daze event in the fall. Complete with parade launching from the Willow Creek-China Flat Museum, which holds the largest collection of Bigfoot artifacts in the world, the festival will migrate to Veteran's Park and the VFW where festivities include local vendor booths, a massive Kids Zone, live entertainment from local original artists, food, beer, cider, and more food!
Whether you love the show, or hate the show, these four folks helped shape and mold a subculture, attracting new people to the phenomenon, while inspiring thousands across the world to pic up a book, read on line, or venture outdoors to create an entirely new generation of Sasquatch Enthusiasts. Over the course of a decade Finding Bigfoot has traveled the world 5x over, and inspired many others to follow - Congratulations to Matt, Cliff, Ranae and our dearly beloved James "Bobo" Fay - We will miss you!
