Chainsaws & Chuckwagons

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 July 14,15,16 and 17 with live music and food trucks (Chuckwagons)! 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).
