After 41 years of throwing the city's biggest party, Woodbury Days is going digital.

Coinciding with the recent redesign of its website, the Woodbury Days Council announced that all registration going forward would be done online rather than on handwritten forms.

Nearly 300 businesses participate in the annual festival, and the switch will save volunteers 70 hours of data entry, according to the organization.

The council also announced that it was getting rid of an eight-page sponsorship packet normally mailed to more than 1,000 businesses and cutting the 40-page event guide to 32 pages.

Woodbury Days Council President Kati Cheney said the move would allow volunteers to focus their energy on other parts of the festival while "leaving less of a footprint with the amount of paper that we were printing and sending out into Woodbury."

Online registration is open for the Business Fair, Taste of Woodbury and Woodbury Days Grande Parade, as well as sponsorships.

Woodbury Days 2019 will take place Aug. 23-25 at Ojibway Park. For more information, visit
