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!

We had a great time at Jack Pine Lumberjack. The two lumberjacks that competed were totally amazing. Great learning experience. I had no idea that they had to have such skills. The log rolling was probably the most entertaining, and certainly required a lot of skill.

Looking for something to do with our grandkids this summer. We stumbled across this Lumberjack show and thought at first it was going to be a “tourist trap”, but we were pleasantly surprised. It was very interesting, professional and entertaining. Everyone in the audience was laughing and enjoying the show. I would highly recommend this and money worth spending. It... More

I have seen this show in different states and this is a good one. We started going here because it gives us something to do in the evening...we enjoy the show and dinner. It's good for children and adults both. Always go to this when we are in Mackniaw City.

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

The show lived up to its billing as top notch. The lumberman and the announcer were top notch and very engaging with the crowd with great competitions laced with humor.

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.
