The 2018 Autumn Timber Festival at the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area

At the heart of those festivities are the showcases and contests put on by the Timber Team Lumberjacks; the woodsy challenges will include log rolling, chainsaw carving, crosscut sawing, springboard chopping, speed climbing, axe throwing, and more. Those lumberjack faceoffs will be going down three times a day both Saturday and Sunday at noon, 2 PM, and 4 PM, and needless to say you really ought to take in the sawdust-flying action.
Other Activities & Entertainment at the 2018 Autumn Timber Festival
Besides those logger-style competitions, you and that main squeeze of yours will get to enjoy blacksmith and sawmill demos, fortune-telling, stilt-walking, living statues, pig races, the Time Traveling Medicine Magic Show, juggling, and other old-timey pleasures—plus rides on the Shawnee Mountain chairlifts for some handsome Pocono scenery. There will also be chainsaw sculptures on display for your ooh-ing and aah-ing pleasure.
Live music, meantime, will be supplied by a pair of great local groups: the Sidekicks, a rootsy country outfit, and the Lost Ramblers Bluegrass Band.
And there’s all the festival food and the varied arts-and-crafts vendors, the whole affair adding up to one great big irresistible autumnal soiree!
