Forest Fest - The BEST Fest in the Midwest!
A Celebration of All the Forest Has to Offer

2018 Forest Fest!

This year's event will be on Saturday July 28, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our 2017 event brought 1,200 area residents and visitors to the Trees For Tomorrow campus in Eagle River. 

Forest Fest features logging equipment demonstrations, a lumberjack breakfast, arts, craft and food vendors, exhibits, horse-drawn wagon rides, children’s activities, chainsaw carving, papermaking, historical logging equipment, and more!

Exhibits and programs celebrate all the forest has to offer and focus on: wood harvesting, wood products, wilderness, the forest, wildlife, water quality and recreation. Demonstrations from logging industry professionals talk about the history of logging, current safety practices, harvesting, transporting, and preparing wood for use.  There will be several exhibits that demonstrate how wood is used to make everyday products.

Our goal with Forest Fest is to educate the general public about all of the products we enjoy and rely on that come from our forests.  Also, as a successful organization, we have a responsibility to give back to the community we thrive in. Participants include forestry and logging professionals, fine artists and crafters, businesses, organizations and associations from landowners to trappers and governmental agencies.

All proceeds support natural resources education for youth!  This is a free event, open to the public.  We graciously accept suggested donations of $5/person, $20/family.  Donation not required for attendance.
