About Garnock Valley Carves Chainsaw Carving Festival

2018 sees the exciting arrival of a new chainsaw carving event on Sept 8th. This fun and creative event will provide an opportunity for everyone to watch a jaw dropping spectator event, and also to enjoy community activities, family games and enjoy some of the locally sourced produce and food stalls.

There are 7 international and award winning chainsaw carvers confirmed to compete to win the very first Garnock Valley Carves title, showcasing a spectacular piece of performance art demonstrating astonishing skill and talent from across the globe.

Besides the contest itself, there will be a wide variety of interactive events for all ages to enjoy and many opportunities to feel inspired and learn some new skills. You'll find face painting, a children’s tent, wood carving workshops, outdoors woodland crafts and games, with more being added to the list and confirmed daily...

All the carvings produced will be for sale in the auction at the end of the day, with a ‘quick carving’ taking place after the main competition, which will produce smaller, more accessible works of art for sale. Witnessing wood being carved into something beautiful with a chainsaw is quite spectacular, providing a special atmosphere for all the senses!

All profits from the event will benefit local community and projects and help the event become a sustainable and annual festival.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Garnock Valley Carves Chainsaw Carving Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
