The Lumberjack World Championships began in 1960 as a way to acknowledge the rich history of the logging industry across the United States. Work day skills that were perfected in the forests of the nation became a past-time and soon grew into an exciting and growing sporting event. From the Lumberjack World Championships, now trademarked in Hayward, Wisconsin, to the ESPN's Great Outdoor Games, lumberjack sports has increased in popularity with loyal fans and competitors from across the globe.

Hayward, Wisconsin, rich in both history and natural beauty, holds its lumberjack championships in what was once a giant holding pond for logs of Weyerhaeuser's North Wisconsin Lumber Company. The people of Hayward embrace this rich history each summer with hundreds of volunteers and community support making this a world class event for thousands of visitors.
