RANGELEY – Saturday, July 30th marks the celebration of the 31st Annual Rangeley Logging Festival and parade. This is set to be the biggest and best festival ever. State and federal dignitaries will be on hand to help us honor this area’s long-held tradition of working in the woods. After the parade The Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum will host the festival at the museum grounds at 221 Stratton Road.
This year ,the Logging Festival organizers are dedicating more space for artists and crafters and are welcoming new applications for vendors for this one-day event. Items for sale must be original work, no re-sale items, please. This is a great opportunity for vendors since you virtually have a guaranteed audience as festival goers come to the Logging Museum for the traditional Bean Hole Dinner and Woodsmen’s Competition. This date, July 30th, coincides with the Doobie Brothers Concert later that evening at the Wellness Pavilion so Rangeley will be a busy town and it should be a great day for vendors.
Spaces are 10 x 10 plus elbowroom for $20 per space. There are limited spaces are available with electricity for $30, please reserve early. Set up starts at 8 a.m. and hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no rain date for this event.
