Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous

Welcome back to Ridgway for the 2023 Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous. Appalachian Arts Studio will be hosting 75 carvers at The Ridgway Mills, April 26-29 for live carving, food, entertainment, and a small auction. Many carvers will bring finished pieces with them to sell directly. April is going to be perfect weather for the event and you don’t want to miss it. There will be a $5/person gate fee for adults. Kids (under 18) are free. You’ll get a wristband that is good all four days of the Rendezvous!
