Captivating audiences for the past 25 years, Timberworks Lumberjack Show Powered by STIHL provides images of man against the impossible along with the sport derived out of a nation’s heritage.
The Show includes such events as axe throwing, chopping, log rolling, cross cut sawing, hot sawing and chainsaw carving. These century old skills were used in the logging camps of North America. To pass idle time, lumberjacks would challenge each other in a head-to-head competition. Although technology and machinery have replaced manual labor, the skills are still used today by the Lumberjacks in the STIHL Timberworks Lumberjack Show.
Feel the rush of adrenaline as competitors race up poles at lightning speed or saw through twelve inches of aspen with the speed of a modern day chain saw. Then move to the edge of your seat as competitors show off their fancy footwork while running on logs or axe throw with the precision of a dart board champion.
Timberworks Lumberjack Shows has been featured on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, TNN, ESPN Jeep Trails, Discovery Channel’s “The Travelers,” MTV’s The Real World and Road Rules and the Family Channel and the Outdoor Life Network.
Drawing live audiences of over one million combined, Timberworks Lumberjack Shows is an exciting and entertaining adventure providing a unique blend of sports, history and comedy and includes an opportunity for the audience to experience a nostalgic logging competition of the early 1900′s.
