Popular Timberworks Lumberjack Show returns to Indiana State Fair

From the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis – Cross-cut sawing, chopping, hot chainsaw carving and log rolling are all part of the everyday life of a lumberjack, at least for Timberworks Lumberjacks. For the second consecutive year, this comedic group of Midwestern outdoorsmen will show off their unique combination of athleticism and thespianism for thousands of spectators daily at the State Fair’s Celebration Park in Indiana.

The crowd seems to like the speed climbing best. Unlike what you see at Climb Time Indy, this is more along the lines of thrill climbing.

The Wisconsin-based Timberworks Lumberjacks have been entertaining audiences throughout the U.S. and in Canada, Australia and Africa since 1980.  More recently, these lumberjacks have been showcased on national television programs, including ESPN’s Great Outdoor Games and ABC’s Wide World of Sports, as well as most of the Indianapolis media venues.

The performances offer a unique, action-packed blend among the special Indianapolis events and entertainment the Indiana State Fair offers every year.  The Timberworks Lumberjack shows attracted standing-room-only crowds during the fair last year, and they have high expectations again this year.


The lumberjacks will perform at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. every day of the fair, Aug. 7 – 23.
