FUN, FOOD AND FAMILY–
Texas State
Forest Festival
HAS IT ALL!
Begun in 1984, the Texas State Forest Festival
is an annual event hosted by the Lufkin/Angelina
County Chamber of Commerce. Held Wednesday
through Sunday of the last full week in September,
the Texas State Forest Festival is a five-day festival
that attracts crowds of more than 25,000 people!
The Texas State Forest Festival hosts competitions,
to include: the East Texas Cheerleading
Championships, the Southern Hushpuppy
Championships, the East Texas Pom-Pom/Dance
Team Competition, East Texas Got Talent, the Miss
Forest Festival and Little Mr. Timberjack Pageant,
and more.
Recognizing Lufkin/Angelina County as
the Forest Capital of Texas, the Timberworks
Lumberjack Show provides festival goers an action-
packed show featuring the world’s top lumberjacks
competing in events designed to challenge even
the heartiest lumberjack.
The Texas State Forest Festival has a Children’s
Festival held each year by Angelina Beautiful/Clean
designed to provide fun and education for the
younger festival-goers. The Children’s Festival is
home to the Travelin’ Train, a small train that gives
children a ride around the festival grounds for no
cost. There are food vendors with different types
of foods, and a commercial vendors area where
area businesses set up booths to advertise and sell
products and services. The giant carnival also gives
Texas State Forest Festival visitors a place to enjoy
the Festival experience!
