The NYS Woodsmens Field Days, a nonprofit organization, was founded by the Rev. Frank Reed in 1948. With the support of over 400 volunteers, the Field Days have evolved into one of the predominant lumberjack contests in the United States today. Contestants come from as far away as Canada, Australia and New Zealand to compete in the festivities. Woodsmen’s contest are held all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All weekend there are hundreds of displays of various forestry related equipment, chainsaw carving demonstrations, safety demonstrations and more.

While the primary goal of the NYS Woodsmen’s Field Days is promotion of the forest industry, the original intent of Rev. Reed is still taken into consideration: to honor the lumberjack, a vanishing breed of men.
