Cascadia Axe Company Grand Opening
Kyle and Bird Durrant had planned to open Cascadia Axe Company in February, but are still waiting for some things to go through with the City of Medford. Currently the grand opening party is scheduled for Sunday March 1st, though you'll want to double check with their Facebook page to make sure the date hasn't been updated. Axe throwing spots at the grand opening will be limited and with reservations only, though you can still come and enjoy the other festivities.
Cascadia Axe Company is still trying to raise money to cover costs of the business, so if you'd like to help, check out their Indiegogo campaign.
The building itself is a work of art and created from upcycled materials. Check out this amazing artwork stair installation:
For those worried about intoxicated people throwing axes, the owners of Cascadia Axe Company want to assure you that the primary function of the business is axe throwing, not drinking.
According to their Facebook, there will be rules patrons will have to follow. "If you are intoxicated, you will not be allowed to throw an axe, or be in the throwing lanes. To minimize the risk of intoxication, we do not sell hard alcohol and the amount of beers/ciders you can have is not as much as you can fit in your belly." Patrons wanting to throw axes will sign a wavier, be given a lesson on how to safely handle an axe, throw an axe, and how to throw an axe when others are around.
