It will be a woodworkers paradise on June 17th at Sawdust Fest! Mark your calendars for the 2nd annual Sawdust Fest with Millers Rustic Sawmill!
Bucky and Melissa Miller have worked tirelessly on the second Sawdust Fest. This year the fest will be even bigger, just in time for Father's Day weekend! We spoke to Melissa about their celebration. "Sawdust Fest is a celebration for the love of all things wood. You will find a welcoming atmosphere in our small town that reminds you of a more simple time in this crazy world.”
A lineup of makers will be providing demonstrations in a number of different fabrication methods. Makers who are skilled in fiber arts, knife making, chainsaw carving, scrollsaw artists, pen turning, raku pottery, painting and wood carving will be sharing their skills from 8am-4pm on Saturday.
Shop for the best wood slabs, test your hammer skills, listen to live music, and grab a refreshing beverage in one of the local shops. And make sure to register for the Belt Sander races at 4pm or just come to watch this one of a kind race!!
At 12:45, visitors can caravan to the Millers Sawmill from Main Street to get a close-up look at their operations and to watch a sawmill demonstration.
If you can’t wait till the 17th, join the fun with the Exclusive VIP Kickoff on Friday, June 16th. Get early access to slab shopping, a private dinner, swag gift bag and live music. But get your VIP pass early! Limited seating is available.
“Bring your family and friends and spend the day together, enjoying family fun at a slower pace while you wander around our Main Street watching the demonstrations and enjoying all of the activities we have to offer,” said the Millers. Follow up the festival with a car show in the neighboring town of Stanberry, MO on Sunday, June 18th. It will be a family-friendly Father’s Day weekend and they can’t wait to spend the weekend with you.
