Experience World Champion Lumberjacks in a fast paced action packed...

Experience World Champion Lumberjacks in a fast paced action packed lumberjack competition, 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 demostrates 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!

Kyle and Derrick were our Lumberjacks for the night. They gave us a great show but it was even better talking to them after the show and hearing how much they love what they do.

I wasn't too sure at first about this show. It seemed a little hokey, in a little arena. But it ended up great. There are very few folks involved--an emcee, two nationally rated lumberjacks, and a person to handle the (obligatory) gift shop. The emcee was hilariously entertaining, and refreshing because it was all family appropriate humor. The two lumberjacks,... More

The MC of the entertainment and the two lumber jacks who demonstrate their skills are world champions! The audience cheers as two lumberjacks compete in a series of skills: axe throwing, pole climbing, speed sawing and best of all log rolling (someone has to get wet!). T There is an audience participation. I can't tell you what it is. I'll... More

This was fun to watch. The seating area is covered because they perform rain or shine. We were able to see the worlds champion lumberjack perform. We had lots of kids there and several of them received prizes for participating. The announcer did a great job and one of the children from New Jersey gave him a "run for his... More

Really enjoyed the show. Great family experience and reasonably priced. Get there a few minutes early so you don't miss any events. Also, the length of the show is perfect at 1 1/2 hours long especially for younger children who can stay focused for the entire show. The interaction with children is great.

What an Excellent show. This show is filled with entertainment. The log rollers demonstrated skill in all events and were great. The M.C. kept the show moving by involving audience participation and giving relevant information about each event. This show is for all ages, can't rave enough about it. This show is a MUST SEE!!
