20th Annual

Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous

Throughout the Rendezvous there will be opportunities to interact with skilled artists, enjoy live music, and purchase finished pieces directly from the artist.

And back for 2019 — live carving! That's right, each carver will start with an 8 foot log to chop away at and shape into a finished piece. If you like what you see, make the carver an offer to take it home with you.

Carvers will be competing for awards in three categories: People's Choice, Social Media Choice, and Carver's Choice.

We hope you will Rendezvous with us April 25-28, 2019 in Ridgway!
