2017 Parade

2017 Stillwater Lumberjack Days Parade

Starts at 1:05pm on Sunday, July 23, 2017

Registration is OPEN!

Yes!  We will be continuing the tradition of the parade with an overall hometown feeling, as we look at ways to make our event a great experience for parade viewers, participants, and workers alike.

Last year we added a motorcycle demo team, drum line, a couple marching bands, several new entries, and we greatly improved programming at Washington Square Park.  We expect to sustain those improvements and hope to add a few more wrinkles with the community's help, and make this year’s parade even better than last year’s.  All of those new features involve performance fees (along with the other fees to put on a parade), hence the importance of continued financial support of the greater Lumberjack Days event.  Our goal remains to make Stillwater’s parade route THE place to be on Sunday early afternoon, July 23rd, as we contribute to the weekend’s celebration of Stillwater, the greater St. Croix Valley, and our area’s Lumberjack heritage.  With your creative help, and passing your ideas back to us, we can make it so!

If you have questions, please contact Parade Director Dave Ratte at parade.thelocals@gmail.com.
