The vendors will be competing for the title of Rib Fest People’s Choice Champion.

The prizes are $2,000 for First Place, $1,500 for Second Place, and $1,000 for Third Place.

During the festival, check out the Smoky Mountain Wood Choppin’ Championship, an authentic timbersports competition. Lumberjacks from around the country will be there to compete in these events: Standing Block Chop, Underhand Chop, Singlebuck, Springboard Chop, Hot Saw, and Speed Climb. This is taking place on both days of the festival.

Enjoy live music from local artists both days from River Divide, Whiskey Business, and a surprise headliner. For the kids and the kids-at-heart, there will be inflatables, mini-golf, face-painting, caricature drawing, and games.

They would like to thank their sponsors- Sugarlands Distilling Co., Top Concepts, TopJump Trampoline and Extreme Arena, Crave Golf Club, Toy Box Mini Golf, and Climbworks.

About Lumberjack Feud

Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show and Adventure Park is a two-in-one attraction in the heart of Pigeon Forge, TN. The show is more like a good ole-fashioned competition between two logging families competing in 13 lumberjack events such as the speed climb, springboard chop, and boom run. The lumberjacks are world-class athletes, and their skills will amaze you.
After the show, see if you’ve got what it takes to be a lumberjack at the Adventure Park and compete in those events yourself. There are 4 unique ways to play, including a thrilling ride on the world’s first zipline coaster- The Flying Ox.
