While most festivals are celebrations of countries and cultures, that’s not exactly what the Stihl Timbersports event is about. It’s a showcase for a unique sport starring lumberjacks.
The sport originated in Canada, the USA and New Zealand, where lumberjacks held local competitions to determine the best of their profession. Over time these tests of strength and skill evolved to a professional level and in 1985 the first STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Series Championships were held in the USA.
In Canada, STIHL TIMBERSPORTS has consistently grown from a niche sport in the lumberjack community to a National Tour with over 15 competitions from east to west.
The Stihl Timbersports series shows the very best men and women, as well as rookies, in the bid to win the Championship. If you’d like to watch one of the most unique events that takes place in the city, then come join the fun at the end of the month!
