FEATURED EVENTS IN YOUR CITY
Throw on your favourite checkered shirt and channel your inner lumberjack because the 60th annual Squamish Days Logger Sports Festival is back this summer.
Taking place from Thursday, August 3 to Monday, August 7 in Squamish BC, the festival is ideal for a long weekend away, packed with fun and entertainment for all ages.
There will be two world-class Logger Sports Shows featuring participants from countries like Germany, the US, Switzerland, Australia, and of course Canada. They’ll all be competing for prestigious competition titles.
And it doesn’t stop at logger sports. You’ll be able to check out live country music, chili cook-off and kettle boil competitions, a parade, whacky bed races, an eight kilometre race, and an epic pancake breakfast. And of course, no epic event is complete without some delicious beverages, which is why the beer gardens are being sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Okanagan Springs.
The event showcases the rich heritage found in Squamish, as well as interesting logger sports events like tree climbing, speed bucking, axe throwing, obstacle pole bucking, tree topping, and much more. So it goes without saying that you’ll definitely be entertained throughout this five-day festival.
