Sedro Woolley's 4th of July Celebration !

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. The majority of them starting as part of the Sedro-Woolley Loggerodeo™ celebration.
