Humboldt County is home to the eclectic, the creative, the bold and the daring. Within its borders thrive peace-seekers, adventurers, makers and innovators whose endeavors are inspired by the natural landscape and fostered by the community. The region boasts more artists per-capita than any other county in California and promotes the arts through festivals, on-going art walks and street fairs.
