2019 Woodsmen Show

Dakota and Anthony Robarge of Naples, N.Y. compete in the two-man cross cut at the 2019 Woodsman’s Show, sponsored by the Galeton Rotary Club.

The Woodsmen Show returns to Cherry Springs State Park outside Galeton on Aug. 6, 7 and 8. In its 69th year, the event is sponsored by the Galeton Rotary Club and Visit Potter Tioga and supports civic organizations and projects in Galeton.

This year’s show is dedicated to John Ryan, a longtime Galeton Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow who died in January.
