Stay tuned for 2020 event details!

When:
2020
Where: Main Street in Downtown Frederick (between Fourth St. and Fifth St. next to Crist Park) 105 5th Street, Frederick CO 80530

Event Details

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 on Main Street in Downtown Frederick and there will be live music and food trucks, or Chuckwagons (food trucks)!

Quick Carve Auctions


Visitors will get a visual treat with the hour-long quick carves. Carvers have one hour to create a smaller carving that is then auctioned off on the spot. Auctions will take place in our Crist Park gazebo. Those interested in being the highest bidder and purchasing a one-of-a-kind art piece should bring a credit card or cash.

Carving Contest 


Don't forget! This is a competition. Bring the whole family to Crist Park to see the completed wood carvings and vote for the "People's Choice" masterpiece carving (the big ones) while enjoying live music and fun kids activities!
