Old Tyme Country Lumberjack Festival

July 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

Come see, come saw!

Professional Lumberjacks from the forests of New Brunswick are taking over the Boardwalk – and you can get in on the action. Don your flannel, roll up the sleeves, and see if you have what it takes! Try your hand at axe throwing – or, leave it to the pros and come see lumberjacks compete. You WOODn’t want to miss the Maritime Lumberjack Association!

You’ll surely work up an appetite, and boy are we happy to deliver some of the finest food and drink that will satisfy even a hungry lumberjack!

Various local New Brunswick vendors will be on site to showcase and celebrate all the resources we cherish here in New Brunswick.

A special feature of the city’s newest festival is the unveiling of a new sculpture that is inspired by our waterfront log driving history.  See it unveiled Thursday, and then watch the artist at work Friday!
