The Albany Timber Carnival was held almost every July in Albany, Oregon to celebrate Independence Day and to commemorate the region’s timber industry. The carnival began in 1941 and was comprised of four main activities: logging sports competition, royal court, parade, and fireworks display. The carnival lasted until 2000, when Albany’s changing economy no longer depended on timber as much.
