The Sierra Timberfest logging show is an American Lumberjack Association sanctioned event, all competitors must be an ALA member to compete. You can register as a full member or one time show member at the following link https://americanlumberjacks.com/membership-shop . Registration for the event is also available at the following link sierratimberfest.com
The Sierra Timberfest is located in the beautiful small High Sierra Mountain Valley town of Loyalton, Ca. Loyalton only has one hotel with 12 rooms. The hotel owner, one of the event organizers, will block the rooms of the weekend of the event for competitors, first come first serve (https://www.goldenwest711.com). However, if you have an RV trailer and wish to stay in that, there is plenty of room at the old mill, there are no RV hookups at this site though (contact Wes Palmer if you are bringing on RV). Loyalton is also a short drive west from Reno should anyone be flying in. There are also many hotels in Reno if you’re unable to stay in Loyalton.
We will have an area designated for contestants, however we have limited space. Contestants will be able to unload gear at the contestant’s area and park their vehicles in the hotel parking lot near the arena. We will also have some pop-ups and tables set up in the contestant’s area, should there be anyone flying in.
We hope to see you at the Sierra Timberfest!
