The 2022 Redwood Acres
Exceptional Rodeo was, well, 'exceptional!"

(Pictured: Henry Stratman of Eureka.)
  Humboldt Sponsors was proud to be the sponsor of the popular Exceptional Rodeo once again, in partnership with Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in Eureka.

  The well-attended event took place Sunday, June 26th. What a fun, action-packed day with lots of rodeo activities and  games for the special needs cowboys and cowgirls, who all received special awards and prizes for participating.

Saturday, October 1st
9am - 3pm
It's our "Grand Finale" ~ 
our last & final Rummage Sale!
Sadly, after more than 55 years, Humboldt Sponsors has decided that this will be our last rummage sale. We have
made this difficult decision after long and careful consideration of several factors: mainly, the loss of our storage facility lease, the ever-increasing costs, and the time and effort involved in preparing for and holding the sale.
We hope the community will come join us at Redwood Acres on Oct. 1st to shop the rummage sale one last time, while supporting the kids of Humboldt!
The sale will once again feature three buildings full of bargains for the entire family! Free admission! Free parking!
We hope to see you all there!
