East Stroudsburg, PA to Feature Autumn Timber Festival

East Stroudsburg, PA – With the picturesque mountain as a backdrop, the Autumn Timber Festival offers a weekend full of family friendly entertainment, music, food and festivities during the prime fall foliage time in the Pocono Mountains. The Festival will be held October 12 & 13, 2019 at the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area, 401 Hollow Rd., East Stroudsburg, PA 18301.


Featured entertainment is the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Shows. World Class Lumberjacks will thrill spectators with both demonstrations and staged competitions as they axe throw, log roll, chop, saw and chainsaw. A colorful announcer combines folk lore, comedy and history into each show to encourage a rowdy frontier spirit. Three shows will be performed daily in the slope side open air arena.
On stage, live country music will be provided both days by local favorites, The Cramer Brothers Band on Saturday and The Brian Dean Moore Band on Sunday. All under the huge fest tent complete a big dance floor for line dancing. The Lost Ramblers will stroll the festival grounds both Saturday and Sunday playing high energy Appalachian music that runs the gamut from bluegrass to gospel, swing and old- time music in three-part harmonies.
Festival Americana and novelty entertainers include David Feimster’s “Sue Wee” Pig Racing, Magician Stephen Christopher’s Traveling Medicine Show, “Rainbow Pony” Pony Rides and Barn Animal Petting Zoo, local blacksmith Jim Doherty and saw mill demonstrations. Chainsaw Carvers will demonstrate and display throughout the weekend.
Along with dozens of specialty food vendors, beverages will be available outdoors as well as indoors in the EZ Bumpps Saloon. The indoor Hope Lodge Café will also be open during the festival.
Autumn Timber Festival hours are 11AM to 5PM on both Saturday and Sunday.  Advance discount tickets are available online at $9 Adult, $7.50 Child for either Saturday or Sunday. Toddlers 4 and under are admitted FREE.  Group rates for 15 or more and Festival Lodging packages are also available online at
