Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous

Hundreds of carvers from across the nation and around the world gather in the beautiful little town of Ridgway attracting thousands of spectators each March.

During the week, carvers will transform hardwood logs into life-sized works of wildlife art, large totem poles and abstract pieces with their saws and hand tools. You'll find everything from bears and birds to the downright bizarre! Carvers will be carving live as they prepare pieces for an open auction, taking place on Saturday, giving you the opportunity to take your favorite pieces home!

Chainsaw carving seminars and how-to demonstrations will be offered Monday through Thursday along with opportunities to meet and talk to the carvers and watch them make the sawdust fly.

Specialty shops and restaurants will be open along with craft vendors selling souvenirs and other items.
