The Logging Festival is a Labor Day weekend tradition in Newaygo County, and they'd love for the community to take part in all of the activities they have planned.

The annual Logging Festival will take place all throughout downtown Newaygo, celebrating the county's long history of logging on the Muskegon River.

The event will feature a lumberjack competition, log rolling, kids competitions and a kids spectator roll. Also new to the event this year, there will be a hot dog eating competition.

The Annual Logging Festival is happening September 1-3. There will be free parking available at Resonate Church on 302 East 68th Street, with shuttles running every 30 minutes from downtown Newaygo to the church.
