The Fall Festival and Lumberjack Competition returns to the Sullivan County Fairgrounds in Forksville this weekend. For two days, Oct. 12 and 13, lumber Jacks and Jills will compete in state-sanctioned events to vie for cash prizes. The event has drawn thousands of fans in previous years. 

Exquisite chainsaw carvings are created on site then auctioned off to spectators, which can browse the offerings of numerous vendors in between their favorite events. Quilts and photography will be on display in the exhibit halls, and experts at traditional crafts will provide demonstrations.

The weekend is sponsored by the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce, which also engages a variety of local organizations to display fall-themed art and conduct activities like pumpkin painting for children. There’s plenty of food and live music to enjoy as well.

The Sullivan County Fairgrounds are located at 4430 Rt 154, just east of Rt 87 in Forksville. The event will run from 9 am to 5 pm both days. Admission is $7 for children and $8 for adults.

As of Wednesday, the forecast called for temperatures around 60 both days and a chance of showers late on Saturday.
