MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Stillwater’s long-running Lumberjack Days festival has been canceled for the second year in a row.

Organizers announced Sunday that the festival, which is typically held on multiple days in late July, won’t go on this summer because they “were unable to secure any of the significant sponsorship funds required” in time following the announcement in early May about the ending of Minnesota’s remaining COVID restrictions.
