Lumberjack Days Could Get Axed From Stillwater

STILLWATER, Minn. (WCCO) — Stillwater’s popular summer festival, Lumberjack Days, is in jeopardy.

The city council voted to suspend the city’s contract with Lumberjack Days.

Police are looking into debts owed by St. Croix Events, the company that operates Lumberjack Days.

Several businesses and non-profit groups weren’t paid for this year’s July event.

St. Croix Events said it will make good on all the debts, despite losing 70 percent of its revenue this past year because of flooding and storms.

The contract will remain suspended until the investigation into the debt is complete.

    Fat chance of anyone being paid. My husband’s band has yet to be paid for their 2010 performance!

    Fest became too large! If your hubby is with Soul Asylum, Doubtful which I think is when they played there, best performance Lumberjack Days ever had!

    Sounds just like the problem with the taste of MN . Got to big for their britches and money hungery. Was far better when they did not charge for everything at the Taste of MN. We all know they got to pay for the bands at all these events but a familiy of any number just can’t pay these amounts with out taking out a loan. Too bad some nuts had to make off with the money.
