Chainsaw Carving Demos & Auction

Chainsaw Carving Artists & Auction

Over 20 Artists in Action!

We will have 20+ chainsaw carving artists showcasing their skills throughout the festival. Many of our featured artists are Hoosiers, but we have carvers coming from Alaska, Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin!

The carving action will be nearly non-stop with creations coming to life before your eyes! Check out the gallery of wood carving pieces below some of these artists have created in the past to get a feel for what you will see at our festival!

These talented artists will sell / auction off their creations, allowing you to take home a one of a kind piece of art!

Proceeds from the auction of carved items will benefit the (FFA) Future Farmers of America!
