The Old Town Lumberjack Festival

Date(s) - 03/04/2023
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


After far too long of a hiatus, we’re so excited to welcome you back to the fun! Join us for the 4th Annual Brrs, Beards & Brews: A Lumberjack Festival. Come on out and show how very little the weather means to REAL Michiganders. 
We will close down Turner Street for this old-school event from Cesar Chavez to Clinton St. We will be featuring:
  • Feats of Strength Team Competitions
  • Beard and mustache competitions featuring local and regional competitors
  • Beer, bourbon, and more!
  • Outdoor vendors 
  • Old Town businesses for Lumberjack themed fun!


  • We love tiny lumberjacks and four-footed, furry ones, but this festival is not the place for them, but they’re welcome to watch the events from safety outside of the fence!
  • We welcome in all burly and not so burly lumberjacks, lumberjanes and everyone in between, at least 21+ years and have a valid ID
  • No outside food or beverage (we’ll have plenty of that for you!),
  • Leave your axes and other weapons at home
There is a suggested $10 donation at the door that goes directly to the non-profit OTCA that supports the neighborhood with business recruitment, beautification and trash pick around Old Town.


If you think you and three of your friends have what it takes to win our Feats of Strength or you’re sporting some fine whiskers and want to compete in the beard competition, shoot us a message and we’ll get you the applications!
