A popular tradition returns to Deposit with the 43rd Annual Deposit Lumberjack Festival! The festival will run from Friday, July 19th through Sunday, July 21st. 

Did you know that the Deposit Lumberjack Festival is actually a non-profit organization itself? It's true! The Deposit Lumberjack Festival was founded in 1976 with the goal to help support the local not-for-profit organizations and businesses of Deposit. The Deposit Lumberjack Festival has been going strong since 1976 with the exception of one year when the festival was put on hold due to flooding and that was in 2006.

The Deposit Lumberjack Festival happens each and every year during the third weekend in July and is a three-day event filled with carnival rides, food vendors, a parade, live music, magic shows, tractor pulls, pony pulls, fireworks and many other family-friendly events.

If you love to hunt for bargains, you won't want to miss the Handcrafted and Novelty Items Sale at Firemen’s Park which will take place on Saturday, July 20th. Also, the Deposit Lumberjack Festival is proud to present the 4th Annual Hopsaw on Saturday, July 20th. Hopsaw will run from 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. and will feature nearly a dozen local craft breweries. Hopsaw will take place in Firemen's Park with free parking and admission.
