Lumberjacks & Jills Head to Country Fair

Among the many exciting events at the Rochester Country Fair in August is the Woodsman Show at 1:00 pm Sunday afternoon, August 19. Lumberjacks & Jills that compete all around New England, Canada and beyond will be coming to Rochester with chain saws, axes and various hand tools. They will be demonstrating their skills while competing for the fastest time. Some have already set world records.

Chris and Lynn Faustino of Rochester started the Woodsman Show over a decade ago. Because of their hard work over the years, it has always been a popular and successful event at the Rochester Fair. Chris and Lynn are also excellent competitors and have competed all over New England. This year the show will be at our new location at 65 Pine Street and will be run by Fair Committee Members Dave and Carol Grime. Besides being at a new location, woodsmen will be competing in several new and exciting events.

You can also take a chance on winning a Stihl Chainsaw donated by one of our major sponsors. Raffle tickets for the Chainsaw can be purchased prior to the show at Matt’s Blackboard Café in Rochester (ask Bev), the Ponderosa in Acushnet or from any RCF Committee Member. The lucky ticket will be drawn at the show.

We are thankful for all the sponsors who helped make this event happen. So come and join us to cheer for your favorite Lumberjack or Jill; it is sure to be a great show! Visit for additional Fair information.
