World's Largest Nutcracker

The Umpqua Valley Festival of Lights welcomed the World's Largest Nutcracker last season. The Nutcracker stands more than 40 feet tall, weighs more than 16,000 pounds and has a working jaw! The nutcracker was built by Willamette Valley Woodworking using downed trees including sequoia, coastal redwood, western red cedar and Port Orford cedar. Visit the Holiday Village to purchase a much smaller version of our nutcracker.
