Description: The Maine Forestry Museum sponsors multiple events in mid-July to celebrate

our region's timber heritage. Join us at our fairgrounds for our 43rd Annual Logging Festival.

This popular two-day event features an Arts & Crafts Vendor Day, Logging Parade, and Logging

Festival. Click here for more information to participate as a vendor.

We sponsor a Saturday morning parade along Rangeley's Main Street featuring loaded big rig

logging trucks, floats, bands, antique cars and much more!

This year's parade theme is "Forest Fire Prevention". Winners for "Best Loaded Truck",

"Most Appropriate to Logging" (logging industry equipment), and "Best Fitting Parade

Theme" for floats and other entries will be chosen. Have fun and come up with a float entry! It

is Smokey Bear’s 80th birthday! To participate in the parade, please contact our parade

coordinator Linda Sikes at 207-491-6566.

At the conclusion of the morning Logging Parade, The Logging Festival kicks off on Museum fairgrounds with our opening ceremonies followed by our Hall of Fame inductions, famous Bean Hole Dinner, biscuits baked on reflector ovens and our exciting logging competition. Come see the axe throw, hot saw, crosscut and many more challenges. Interested in competing in the logging competition? Click here to fill out a form. 

There will be children's activities all day including our popular barrel train ride, mini excavator, clown, face painting, bouncy house and more. Our vendors, artisans and crafters will be there too! Don't forget to check out our beer garden as well!
