Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous
DESCRIPTION: Chainsaw carvers from all over the world display their talents, mingle with their peers, share and learn new techniques, and teach the craft to others at the annual Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous. World Champions create one-hour “quick carve” sculptures and work on larger, more complex pieces of exceptional beauty and complexity throughout the week.
There is also plenty of music, the chance to buy large and small pieces from the assembled artists, communal meals, live music, and much more.
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.
Hundreds of carvers attend this event!
Specialty shops and restaurants will be open.
