Forestry is the number one industry for Winn Parish, and a top industry for the state of Louisiana. It is important to promote and stimulate the industry for not only the economic well being of Winn and surrounding parishes, but also for the state. The Louisiana Forest Festival, reorganized in 1980, salutes the timber industry in our state. The festival encompasses timber related activities. There are numerous forestry equipment displays and related exhibits. Professional lumberjack sports competitors come from throughout the United States to participate in the show.The Lumberjack Challenge TV Show on OLN has featured the festival. There will be 13 lumberjack events to cheer on with 6 different chainsaw events. The festival will have excellent fun and food throughout the day. Come and look at the homemade crafts and join in the fun of contests and prize drawings. There will also be children’s activities and games.
