About
Experience World Champion Lumberjacks in a fast paced action packed lumberjack competition, located near Mackinaw Island, we are a Mackinaw City MUST SEE! Shows at Jack Pine Lumberjack Shows are approximately an hour long, delivered in a competition format, in which the audience is divided up into two rival logging camps, each camp cheering for their lumberjack. It demonstrates the turn of the century skills of the lumberjack including chopping, sawing, axe throwing, cross-cut sawing, speed climbing and logrolling. In addition to the competition, there is also a chain saw carving demonstration. The show educates the audience in the rich history of Michigan's logging past. It is fast paced, up-beat and keeps the audience involved. A fun show for the entire family, children under the age of 5 are free!

We had driven by a couple of times and when searching for things in the area it popped up with great reviews. We called to see if our dog could come since he is traveling with us and can't be left alone and they said it was fine! We purchased tickets online and arrived a half hour early so we could get a good spot for our dog, Rowdy. They had us sit at the end of the bleachers, next to the grass and it worked out well. We could see the show and so could he. It was quite entertaining and actually, informative too! Lasted a little under 2 hours and we felt it was well worth the money. Great for all ages!

The show is two talented lumberjacks competing with their own skills to win the night. It is actual competition and not staged, either could win on any night. The MC helps keep it fun with narration and jokes. They keep your attention with both competitive drama and humor the whole show. I HIGHLY recommend this.

Wow! What talent on display with these lumberjacks. It was my first time ever seeing a show like this and it was not only entertaining but inspiring for the children in the audience. During the show, one of the lumberjacks used a chain saw to "make" a rabbit, but it actually turned into a tiny chair that they gave away to a little girl. The humor and cheering on your "team" made it really fun. One of my favorites was seeing the log rolling, and the skill and concentration needed. Could hardly believe how fast they shimmed up the 45 foot pole and landed back down. A special thanks to Katie in the front office for going above her duties to make my sister's birthday extra special! Dan did a wonderful job in keeping the show going and made our evening one to remember. Put this on your "to see" list!

This is a MUST SEE ! Dan, Dakota,and Chris put on a very entertaining and active story line while providing and interesting background about Michigans rich logging history. The two Iron Jacks, Dakota and Chris put on one heck of a competition. After watching these to perform you will surely know why they are called "Iron Jacks".

Reserved our tickets online, and they greeted us with smiles at the entrance. Funny and entertaining show, complete with audience competition throughout (each half of the audience get's their own lumberjack to cheer for). Our kids were visiting from Phoenix, and thought the show was so much fun.

We attended the show as a family group, ages 5-60 and everyone enjoyed it. The seating is comfortable and is covered so you are protected from sun and rain. There was skill, history and lots of humor. Even the 5 year old enjoyed the whole show!

Great entertainers! The show was well constructed and organized by the M.C.. These guys really put in an effort and you can see they really do enjoy doing the show. Mitch and Chris (with his magnificent beard) are real athletes who have a chemistry with the flow of the show. You'd be doing yourself and family a disservice if you don't work the experience into your vacation plans.

P.s. I met Mitch out at one of the pizza joints one of the other nights I was in town, cool dude!

We loved this show, we saw it 7 years ago and we still enjoyed it. We ended up as a fluke with the exact same lumberjacks that we had 7 years ago. It is entertaining and my teens even enjoyed watching it. It is a must see. I love that all ages can enjoy the show.

These guys do a great job of entertaining kids! This is not a real competition there are two jacks and they do an awesome job. Kids enjoy yelling and cheering and adults have a great time watching as well. If you are in the area it is worth your time for sure!

TIMBER!

This was a fun way to spend the evening as we stayed a night in Mackinaw City before going to the island. Lots of humor, impressive athletes, and the lumberjacks stayed around to visit afterwards. All in all, a great way to entertain the family.
