Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous
February , Ridgway , Pensylvania, website

 

The Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous started as a backyard gathering of  six chainsaw carvers. In 2000, this relatively small group of carvers took it to a whole new level, and at the time, we thought this was quite a big gathering of carvers. Little did we know...

Since then, it has grown to the world's largest event of its kind and evolved into a partnership of community and artistic spirit. Each year becomes a challenge to do better than the last!It is an open invitation to all Chainsaw Carvers wishing to attend the Rendezvous. It is an opportunity for Carvers to share, sell, market and just feel good about who they are and what they do! To be able to measure the growth of the industry while moving the art form forward! To challenge their abilities and encourage their performance! In 2010 one hundred and eighty-two carvers registered and over 50,000 attended the eight day event.
