2021 Baraga Lumberjack Days -  Coming Soon!


After much deliberation and with much sadness, the Baraga Co. Lumberjack Days Committee has made the decision to cancel Baraga Co. Lumberjack Days for 2020. During this unsettling time in history, we feel it is much more important to be proactive in protecting our communities and tourists. There is a possibility we may hold a fundraiser the end of August or in September, only if it is safe to do so, and it would be announced on our page and website so please keep an eye out for any future announcements.


With that being said, we sincerely wish to thank all of the local businesses and all of our individual sponsors from past years who have helped us put on our celebrations. Even though our hearts are heavy, having to make this decision, we look ahead to make next year a spectacular and triumphant return of a celebration to honor our Nation’s independence. Please remain safe out there as we truly look forward to seeing you all again in 2021. God bless you all and God bless America.

Sky Lanterns


The Lumberjack Days Committee will be selling lanterns to be lit at 10:30PM, prior to the fireworks display.  Lanterns can be released in memory or in honor of someone special, as a display of our Independence or to be the beginning of a wonderful family tradition. Sky Lanterns are now available for sale at the following businesses: Northern Oil and The Pines Convenience Center. Cost is $5 each for your choice or red, white or blue. The lanterns are 100% biodegradable and pose no environmental issues.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! On the 4th of July - There will be NO motorized vehicles allowed on Superior Avenue other than for use during the Main Parade. Superior Avenue will be closed to thru traffic from the Baraga Armory to M-38 beginning at 8:00. No four wheelers, side by sides, golf carts, etc. other than those used by committee members only or by emergency personnel. Superior Avenue will continue to be closed from Homestead Graphics to M- 38 after the Main Parade until the conclusion of the fireworks. Due to the number of children playing in the streets, planned events in the street and complaints by citizens from previous years, no motorized vehicles will be allowed other then those used by Committee members. This is for your protection as much as for the children. Thank you for your cooperation as we strive to keep the kids safe.
