Humboldt County is a wild and beautiful area, but is geographically remote and can be a difficult place to get to.
The most straightforward plan would be to book flights directly into California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV). This is a charming little airport with fantastic small town service that unfortunately is also known for delays and cancellations due to weather and airport issues if you connect in San Francisco. There are now flights available that connect through LAX and Denver that offer a higher degree of predictability. It would be prudent to try to fly in a day early, if using ACV, to avoid possibly missing a day of the show.
Other flight options include flying into either: San Francisco (SFO) , Santa Rosa (STS), Sacramento(SMF), or Medford(MFR) airports and then renting a car for the scenic drive to Eureka. There are slight advantages and disadvantages to each choice , but all are between 4-6 hours drive. The cheapest and most straight forward would arguably be Sacramento, but the drive from either San Francisco or Medford are spectacularly beautiful and time well spent.
