The Hoosier Hardwood Festival welcomes families to come learn about the exciting & sustainable world of hardwood in Indiana, while having a great time! We’ll have lumberjack competitions & shows, lumberjack camps to teach you or your little ones some basic lumberjack skills! There will be over 20 of the best chainsaw carving artists from across the country on-site carving works of art right before your eyes! The best part, you’ll be able to buy these pieces at one of our 3 auctions or via a buy now price!
We’ll also have indoor and outdoor exhibitors selling woodworking arts & crafts, a kids zone activity area full of fun, educational sessions to learn about the sustainability of responsible tree harvesting, a petting zoo & wild bird encounter, large logging equipment and so much more! When you need a break from all the exhibits, there will be festival food, beverage gardens and live music!
