Squamish Days Loggers Sports Festival

AN ACTION-PACKED WEEKEND OF EXCITEMENT AIMED TO MAKE EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY SMILE.

What started out in 1957 as a friendly competition among loggers is now an action-packed long weekend full of strength, skill and speed. Squamish Days Loggers Sports is a 5-day event that has become an annual ritual and an important reminder of Squamish's logging past. The festival is jam-packed with family-friendly activities including a parade, wacky bed races, a 8km run, legendary pancake breakfast along with two world-class Loggers Sports Shows that attract competitors from around the world. 

This event showcases not only Squamish's rich heritage, but also, it's strong and vibrant community spirit.
