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!

Great show and great time. Clean humour for all ages. The M.C. did a great job getting the crowd involved. Performers were awesome; one of which is a world class lumberjack that was selected to represent the U.S. on a six man team for a worldwide competition in Australia. I would definitely see this show again.

This is a fun show to go to, especially if you have kids. They always choose random "helpers" from the crowd, and kids love getting to be up front helping. The jokes were silly, but fun. The skill of the lumberjacks is amazing, though. They put on a good show, and by the end, you see that they are dedicated... More

Our Cross Country team and staff (group of 50) ages 5-70 attended and everyone loved it! Great entertainment for all ages. The show is and exciting competition and also includes the history of logging in Michigan. If your visiting the Mackinaw City area put this on your to do/see list!

My husband and I sort of hesitantly checked this show out, expecting it to be really cheesy (which the jokes were), but we were blown away by the talent of the Lumberjacks on the stage! It's serious business being a lumberjack! It was cute how they involved the kids a little too. A really cool show!

This is an excellent family event. Children should sit down towards the front so that they would have an opportunity to participate in the "timber" calling event. They will also be the first to pick up a souvenir wood chip. The host was very humorous. There is a coupon book you can pick up at the visitor's center in Machinaw... More
