Stillwater Officials Want Festival Name Changed

Stillwater city officials are asking organizers of a new summer music festival to change the name, saying it could be construed as vulgar. City Administrator Larry Hansen emailed festival organizer Cassie McLemore on Thursday to request that the Stillwater Log Jam find another name, but McLemore called the request “ridiculous.” McLemore told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the festival’s name fits with the city’s history of a logging community. She also said her group tried to lease the name “Lumberjack Days” from the nonprofit Lumberjack Days Festival Association but couldn’t reach an agreement.
