This May 21-22, Paul Smith’s College Visitor Information Center will host the BIG TREE FEST – celebrating Old Growth and the tall, tall trees that we love to find in the Adirondacks. The weekend will feature guided hikes into Old Growth stands, learning how to determine the age and the height of trees, contests on who can find the tallest and largest by species, food, music, fun and a tribute to Tree 103!
Rusty DeWees comes “DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN” to THE BIG TREE FEST for an in-person on-stage LIVE Comedy and Music Show.
Actor/Comedian DeWees is known for his beloved and valued THE LOGGER persona through which he offers his stellar, hard earned, talents as full-on comedian, musician, ad libber, and story-teller.
Rusty’s one-man comedy shows have been described as Blue Collar Comedy meets Prairie Home Companion. The Boston Globe says “Inventive, Exceptional.”
Rusty DeWees show load is heating up in 2022 and he says “Looking forward to playing the BIG TREE FEST, extending a twenty-five year relationship with the Lake Placid, Saranac Lake area, which you know what, might be near a record for entertainer and New York locations – I’ll say the area audiences are like family, at this point … no joke.”
Rusty DeWees passed his 25th Anniversary year, 2021, doing THE LOGGER sans celebration, cause .. “Celebrate … why would ya? I ain’t over yet.”
