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.
