Established in 1963, the Deming Logging Show was inspired by the need to financially help loggers who were injured in the woods in Whatcom County. From events and exhibitions, loggers display the skills, tools and technology used in the logging industry.

Events include the American Legion breakfast at 6 a.m., and the Ladies Auxiliary coffee and muffins at 9 a.m. Gates and souvenir shacks open at 10 a.m. Eliminations and exhibitions start at 11.
