Lumberjack Days will return to downtown Stillwater next summer.

The Stillwater City Council on Tuesday night will discuss amending the city’s contract with The Locals, possibly allowing them to use the name and logo for Stillwater’s traditional summer festival, Lumberjack Days.

The Locals brought a summer festival back to Stillwater two summers ago.

When The Locals were awarded the contract to put on Stillwater’s community festival, they entered into negotiations to use the name Lumberjack Days, but couldn’t come to an agreement.

So The Locals named their festival Stillwater Log Jam.

Last month, the rights to the Lumberjack Days name and associated trademarks were signed over to the city of Stillwater.

Now, The Locals look forward to carrying on Stillwater’s community festival’s name.

“The city has this name, and they can place it on the event if they would like to,” Brad Glynn, of The Locals, told the Pioneer Press. “We’re hopeful that we’ve proven ourselves worthy of that.”

The City Council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20 at City Hall.
