Chainsaw Carvers' Round-Up

September 14-16, 2018

10 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily

One of the most-anticipated events of the year, the Chainsaw Carvers' Round-Up features artists who work in power tools.  The public is invited to watch works of art being created from "simple pine logs."  The carvers work throughout the weekend, and auctions are held Saturday at 4:00 and Sunday at 3:30 for those wishing to take home one of these masterpieces.   In addition to the carving action, attendees will enjoy the food and craft vendors selling their wares.

Carvers interested in participating may contact the Sawmill Center at (814) 927-6655 or email  Carvers receive free lodging for the weekend and are invited to sell previously completed pieces as well as ones created during the event.
