The 59th Annual Squamish Days Logger Sports Festival is coming up July 28th to August 1st, packing 5 days full of fun for the whole family. It’s one of the largest lumberjack competitions in North America and one of the longest running community festivals in BC!

Squamish Days Loggers Sports Festival

The festival offers ticketed events as well as free events throughout the community:

Thursday Night Kettle Boil (Free)
Friday’s World Championship Chair Carve (Free)
Friday Night Wacky Bed Races (Free)
Saturday Children’s Sports (Free)
Saturday Night Axe Throw Invitational (Free)
Sunday Festival Parade (Free)
Monday Picnic in the Park w/ Live Local Music (Free)

Then there’s the Saturday Loggers Stomp Dance, Sunday Pancake Breakfast, Sunday 8KRun & Flashback Mile, Rotary Beef BBQ and of course the international competition at the Al McIntosh Loggers Sports Grounds. This year’s special guest is Shae Emery former CFL linebacker & founder of Wellmen.

Squamish DaysLoggers sports competitions are true sporting events with competitors requiring strength, skill and stamina. The participants, like any athletes, must train and work diligently to reach the level of skill required to win any of the events. Cash prizes are awarded to the top competitors in each event. Each participant competes in one of three classes: novice, intermediate or open. Two victories move a competitor in novice or intermediate up to the next class.

Competitions include: Axe Throwing, birling, butcher block chop, chokeman’s race, hand bucking, obstacle pole bucking, speed bucking, springboard chop, team relay, standing block chop, tree climbing, tree falling, tree topping, and the underhand chop.
