Celebrating forestry, the Wright City Lumberjax Festival features competitive events including axe throwing, crosscut sawing, double-buck sawing and jack & jill sawing.
Celebrate the season with a chili cook-off, family-friendly activities, live entertainment, arts and crafts, games, food vendors and more.
The festival is a showcase for turn-of-the-century arts and crafts. This year almost 70 exhibitors and vendors will feature crafts and skills like candle making, woodturning, lye soap making, knife making and quilting. Herbalists will share their knowledge, instrument makers will exhibit their work, and quilters will show their best.
Come by the Forest Heritage Center in Beaver's Bend State Park for some family fun! Bring your tools and carving skills for the Pumpkin Carving Contest beginning at 2:00 pm and go through the Haunted Museum starting at 6:30 pm. There will be face painting and fun for the little ones too! For more information give us a call at 580-494-6497.
