There is much excitement brewing as the 2019 Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous approaches. This year is promising to be one of the best! 20 years we’ve been celebrating the art of chainsaw carving.
It’s been and incredible adventure. We’ve met so many wonderful carvers from all over the world. This art form has opened many doors in the exploration of wood sculpting. We’ve all met each other and quite a few others too.
As you know the dates are April 25-28 at the former Motion Control building on Gillis Avenue. Previous Rendezvous’ were held there.
20 Gillis Ave, Ridgway, PA 15853
Through Main Street to the fourth light and turn left onto Gillis Avenue
Check-in and Setup:
What to Bring:
There will be a free breakfast at Joey’s Bakery on Friday morning starting at 7:30am for all carvers

Prize money will be awarded at noon on Sunday.
Again, thank you all for coming and hope we all have a great time.

The first 75 carvers who apply, pay a $100 registration fee, and are accepted will get:
Carvers can keep or sell their piece from the event! It’s your log to do what you wish. There will be no auction.
There will be prize money for a couple categories. Details for how voting will happen for these categories will be announced.
Our grounds crew is limited; carvers will be responsible for their own carvings and sales. Including the loading and unloading of carvings.
The Rendezvous is back!Registration
