October 13, 14, & 15, 2017
We are pleased and excited to present the 12th annual Johnny Appleseed Festival October 13-15, 2017. We are looking forward to what will be an exciting and fun filled weekend of family entertainment.
The cornerstone of the event is the timbersports competition. The Johnny Appleseed Festival has become one of the premier stops on the professional lumberjack circuit. It draws the very best competitors from the U.S. and Canada and features the largest and most talented field of female competitors in a stand-alone event. This year’s schedule will include the U.S. Open Springboard Title and National Standing Block Title sponsored by STIHL. Again this year, the entire event will be broadcast over the internet by the digital video network Rated Red. Last year their streaming coverage attracted over 400,000 viewers.
In addition to the Lumberjack/Jill events, we will have live music, apple pie baking contest, cornhole tournament, wine tasting at the Sheffield Firehall, Lanterns to Heaven and a sawdust pile dive for children. Our many vendors continue the tradition of great food as well as beautiful crafts and other items made by local artisans. New this year we are pleased to present the Lumber Heritage Region of Pennsylvania. They will be displaying historic photographs and artifacts and give oral presentations highlighting our unique past and traditions.
Admission is free so bring the whole family and join us for music, food, crafts and world class timbersports. Hope to see you there!
