This year the event will take place on Saturday 27th August in Faido in the sports centre area, with activities starting at 9 a.m. a.m. and ending in the evening with dinner and various entertainments.

The woodcutter's skill competition (Ticino championship) consisting of five exciting events is accompanied by the forestry fair, the handicraft market, the Mini-Pentathlon for the little ones, the climbing competition and the chainsaw sculpture competition.
