The year 2020 will be remembered in history. The COVID-19 virus has changed many lives. Some of us have learned to sacrifice things like high school seniors missing out on graduation and many of us are learning how to be a family again by staying home and doing things together. History has given us many obstacles to tackle such as world wars, polio, measles, the Spanish Flu and the Great Depression, to name just a few. We have survived and persevered to keep living and continue on. We will overcome this also.

That being said, the Loggerodeo™ board has regrettably made the decision to cancel the 2020 Loggerodeo™ Fourth of July celebration. We have given a lot of consideration and thought to this decision. Because of the number of people that attend these events, we feel that it is best to cancel so that we do not put anybody in jeopardy of contracting this virus. All it takes is one person to get many sick. Our board feels that we all needed something positive and fun for a change but there's too much risk involved.

On a positive note, we are hoping to have fireworks and the chainsaw carving event later on in September. We do not have the dates as of now but stay tuned.

Welcome to the Official Loggerodeo™ at the Chainsaw Carving Capitol of Washington State and the Pacific Northwest in Sedro-Woolley!!
We are celebrating the longest running 4th of July celebration in Washington State.
Sedro-Woolley will host a number of activities during the 4th of July celebration; Loggerodeo™, as well as the longest running International, invitation only, chainsaw carving competition.  Each year there is a Rodeo for Cowboys and Cowgirls, for the best all around points on the circuit. This takes place at the Rodeo grounds at Highway 20 and Polte Road. Two of the main events are : The “Loggerodeo™”. A rodeo for loggers demonstrating each task a logger is required to perform in their work each day, to include pole climbing, and Chainsaw Carving. Armed with a chainsaw, axe and a few tools, “Chainsaw Carvers” whittle an 8 foot high, 3 foot wide piece of Cedar into some of the most amazing art forms found anywhere. These men and women put on a show for up to 20,000 visitors and tourist each 4th of July. This select group of individuals have proven their skills and abilities, and gone on to become national and world champions.
