Past Events

I have had the privilege to meet many people along my journey. Check it out!

Cambridge, MN

The Isanti County Fair was more fun in 2022 because of Paul Bunyan! I highly recommend him for any event. He was very easy to work with. People of all ages enjoyed getting pictures made with him.

  • Tonya Orbeck, Isanti County Fair Vice President

Faribault, MN

Paul Bunyan was larger than life at the annual Faribault Flannel Formal! He was engaging, easy to work with, and added a lot of fun, laughs, and height to the event! People were thrilled at the chance to meet and take a photo with the legend!

  • Kelly Nygaard, Former Faribault Main Street Coordinator

Stillwater, MN

Paul Bunyan has been awesome at Stillwater’s Historic Community Event - Lumberjack Days. People of all ages, kids and adults were happy to get a picture with “Paul”. For us as the event coordinators, he was very easy to work with and was very considerate and patient with people wanting to get their picture taken with him. We would recommend Paul to participate in any event from family to an adult gathering.

  • Michael Sobieski, Former Stillwater Lumberjack Days Director

Axe Throwing Bar Stillwater, MN

Just when I thought the nature of my business, axe throwing, would be enough to draw a crowd, I met Paul Bunyan! His presence stops people in their tracks - everyone wants to be in a picture with Paul and his good-natured demeanor had my customers lingering and kids clamoring for a minute with him. If you are considering inviting Paul to an event, just do it, you won't be disappointed.

  • Sara Jespersen, Owner

Stillwater, MN

We hired Paul Bunyan for a grand opening event and couldn’t have been more pleased! Paul was very flexible in working with our schedule. He was polite and professional the whole (long) day!! It was very enjoyable watching the kids (adults, too) and Paul interact….a crowd favorite!! We will keep Paul in mind for future events and would definitely refer him to others.

  • Sheila Hause, Director, Washington County Historical Society

Dubuque, IA

What a difference a 7-foot-tall man with a red flannel shirt and a huge axe can make at a County Fair. People forget about the rides and the cotton candy just to get a picture with Paul Bunyan. My job is to put smiles on people’s faces, create an experience, and make memories. Paul made my job easy. He was easy to work with, great with kids of all ages and I would highly recommend him to County Fairs, festivals, or any event you want to put a smile on a face and create a memory.

  • Kevin Kotz, General Manager, Dubuque County Fairgrounds & Event Center

Osceola, WI

The fourth graders at Osceola Intermediate School were able to learn about Paul Bunyan with this amazing presentation that made him larger than life. Students were able to ask questions and were completely engaged.

  • Nelisena Landahl, 4th Grade Teacher

Ames, IA

Paul at Homecoming Kickoff Celebration.

MSP Airport, St. Paul, MN

During MEA days, visitors to MSP had the chance to experience a variety of entertainment options, including posing for a picture with Paul Bunyan, the fabled giant lumberjack. Students young and old got to hold the giant axe as they posed for pictures with Paul on the way to their flight. MSP travelers really seemed to enjoy Paul’s engaging style and sense of humor on their chance encounter with the living legend of the Great North! We were thrilled with the positive impression he made on travelers and airport employees alike!
