The NYS Woodsmens Field Days is held at the Fairgrounds in Boonville, New York the third full weekend in August. This event honors the forestry industry. This gathering is a major stop on the lumberjack and lumberjill competition circuit.  The Field Days bring together a huge variety of forestry-related displays of interest to both the professional logger and the occasional firewood cutter.

Boonville is a small picturesque town located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in central northern New York State. With its long history of logging and its ideal location – directly on Route 12 and a short hour drive from Syracuse, Utica, or Old Forge – Boonville is the perfect location for this event.

The NYS Woodsmens Field Days, a nonprofit organization, was founded by the Rev. Frank Reed in 1948. With the support of over 400 volunteers, the Field Days have evolved into one of the predominant lumberjack contests in the United States today. Contestants come from as far away as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to compete in the festivities. Woodsmen’s contests are held all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. All weekend there are hundreds of displays of various forestry-related equipment, chainsaw carving demonstrations, safety demonstrations, and more.

While the primary goal of the NYS Woodsmen’s Field Days is the promotion of the forest industry, the original intent of Rev. Reed is still taken into consideration: to honor the lumberjack, a vanishing breed of men.
