Epcot’s new live entertainment act, the Canadian Lumberjack Show made its debut performance today at the Canada pavilion.

The show at the Mill Stage features two teams of lumberjacks competing against each other in a variety of lumberjack skills. Axe throwing, chainsaw work, and log sawing are all part of the act. The Canadian Lumberjack Show marks a significant departure from the previous Off Kilter Show, trading a musical act for a thrill-action show. 

The 15 minute show is currently in soft opening, and has not yet appeared on the Epcot times guide or in park signage. We'll be back to bring you a review once the show officially opens and any of the soft-opening test and adjust is complete. To see the very first appearance of the Canadian Lumberjack Show at Epcot, check out our video below.

The Canadian Lumberjack Show is the first act to open following a widespread clear out of existing acts at Epcot. Spirit of American Fife and Drum Corps, World Showcase Players, MO’ROCKIN’, and Off Kilter were all discontinued last month. Replacement acts are expected throughout the coming months in the UK Pavilion, Morocco, and Italy.

Only some of the Off Kilter members perform in CHV. And seeing as some of them have gone on to other full-time jobs, I'm not even sure how many of them will be able to perform this holiday season.

Off Kilter plays at Holidays Around the World as the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs... I'm not seeing anything indicating that this change is anything more than the normal seasonal change.

Exactly, I'm not jumping for joy unless some of those very well informed folks with things around Epcot like @Alektronic or @articos chime in, I'm going to just assume it's a holiday hiatus until something concrete comes out.

I see all the glee, but outside of the Off Kilter site (now not available due to exceeding bandwidth) there is nothing I can find to confirm this. Has anybody got anything official cause without that hard to know whether to believe it.

As a Canadian, I found it very funny to sit back and see how we were portrayed. I was there in August with a friend, and they said "cheer like its a hockey game"..... So my friend and I cheered for the Toronto Maple Leafs for the blue team, and the Montreal Canadiens for the red team....... They weren't amused......

Was there an official announcement? I see times listed through November 24th, could they just be replaced during Holidays Around the World?
