Old Fashioneds Up North, Paul Bunyan Fest, Labor Day Arts and Crafts canceled

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. — Paul Bunyan Fest, the Eagle River Labor Day Arts and Crafts Show, and Old Fashioneds Up North have all been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center board of directors made the decision based on recommendations from the Vilas County Health Department.

Paul Bunyan Fest is expected to return Aug. 18, 2021; the Eagle River Labor Day Arts and Crafts Show on Sept. 5, 2021; and the Old Fashioneds Up North Nov. 13, 2021.

These three 2020 events have been postponed to ensure the safety of local residents and visitors during the pandemic.

Not all Eagle River area events have been canceled. Still expected to take this year are the SepTimber Ride on Sept. 12 and the Eagle in One Golf Outing on Sept. 18.

The Eagle River area remains open and the Chamber invites area residents and visitors alike to pursue their favorite “up north” activities — boating, fishing, water sports, camping, shopping, dining, ATVing, hiking and biking.

In regards to future event postponements, the Eagle River Area Chamber will continue to evaluate each event on its own merit.

The Chamber will continue to make decisions that help the local business community and protect the residents and visitors to the best of its ability.

While the pandemic has affected the Eagle River community in many ways, the Chamber would like to acknowledge all residents and visitors who patronize local businesses during this difficult time.
