Epcot's Canadian Lumberjacks show to permanently close

Posted: Tuesday November 24, 2015 7:55am EST by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Canadian Lumberjacks show at Epcot's Canada Pavilion will be permanently closing at the end of today, November 24 2015.

The show opened in October 2014 in place of Off Kilter as part of a move by Disney to replace long-term acts with new entertainment on short-term contracts.

The Canadian Holiday Voyagers will return for Holidays Around the World later this week, with presumably a new act to follow in the new year.

The one week was incorrect. TradNation are around until the summer at least.

There was a post here somewhere that someone from the new act stated that were only there for the one week. However, they do show on the entertainment calendar from Wed-Sun this week, maybe the stage is being spruced up for them?

Well then... thanks! They must have been on a break last week.

So the stage was just closed off (and barricades removed that allowed for the log rolling and what not) when we were there last week. Any word on if they're planning anything for the stage?

You are very welcome, I loved it but Billy and Jason on their own, are a bit more spontaneous as well. The night I was there in December, they were taking requests and doing their own versions of some Off Kilter favorites like Reel & Roll. They are two very impressive dudes!!! CC added into the mix just threw it over the top for me!!! I hope to see all three in some capacity when I am there in the Spring. Marie

It's SO great that a moment like that can happen in what can sometimes come off as a sterile, cookie cutter environment. Probably helped by the fact that the Scat Cat Club is "off the beaten path". Thanks for sharing!!!

Let's see if this works!!! A few weeks ago CC from Mulch,Sweat And Shears joined up with Jason and Billy of Off Kilter for a song during one of Jason & Billy's shows at Scat Cats at PO French Quarter. I thought it was lovely so I Am going to try to share: Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!!! Marie

The place itself is right in the main building area on your left as you walk in. I found it to be great fun. Have a wonderful time!!! Marie
