The Wonderful World of Sawdust

Our new lumberjack and woodcarving extravaganza located in the gardens.

With a nod to Oregon’s timberland legacy, the 2019 Oregon State Fair is proud to present The Wonderful World of Sawdust. It’s the place to go to see amazing feats of lumberjack skills in a full-on competitive environment. You can also witness the impressive efforts of chainsaw artists working their magic on big chunks of wood, yielding creatures of all sorts.

The Wonderful World of Sawdust will also feature nightly entertainment, story-telling around our new fire pits, axe throwing for all, incredible Oregon craft brews, smores that will blow your mind, and delicious barbeque that’ll leave you wanting seconds.

The Paul Bunyan Lumber Jack Show is pure action.

The Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show is filled with action-packed competition and plenty of laughs. Events include logrolling, underhand chopping, springboard chopping, standing block chopping, crosscut sawing, axe throwing, and dragster chainsaw competitions.

The Bear Hollow Wood Carvers turn logs into art.

Bear Hollow’s Traveling Shows bring the excitement of the full-throttle art form to the Fair with daily carving shows! Bear Hollow’s Wood Carvers bring any idea to life—animals, people, pets—you name it! The sawdust starts flying and the next thing you know, it’s art!
