Chainsaws and Chuckwagons

When: July 14, 15, 16 & 17, 2021

Only the most masterful chainsaw carvers can turn giant logs into beautiful works of art and we’re bringing them to Frederick to compete against each other! The carving competition will take place in mid-July with live music and food trucks, or Chuckwagons (food trucks)! Hour-long quick carves will be auctioned off on the spot on select days of the event. 

Don't forget! This is a competition. Bring the whole family out to see the completed wood carvings and vote for your favorite masterpiece carving (the big ones).
