A Festival for Chainsaws and Chuckwagons in Colorado!

Carve Colorado Festival

It’s a festival dedicated to carving, chainsaws and chuckwagons in Colorado! 

Only the most masterful chainsaw carvers can turn giant logs into beautiful works of art and the city of Frederick will bring them to compete against each other at Centennial Park in Frederick, Colo. 

The carving competition will take place July 19, 20, 21, and 22 with family entertainment and food trucks. Hour-long quick carves will be auctioned off on the spot on select days of the event. 

 Other fun features:

  • Chuckwagons: Food trucks will include Dos Medinas, Origins Pizza, Sticky Fingers, Steamy Weiners, and the Sno Ball Shack. 
  • Axe Women of Maine Show: All female team of Logging Sports athletes has world champion choppers, sawyers, logrollers and axe throwers!

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). 

How do I get my own carving?

This event is all about the carvers! Chainsaw carving is an art combining modern tools (chainsaws) with the ancient art of wood carving. Our carvers depend on festivals and competitions to support their livelihood. You can support them by:

  1. Visit carver booths to shop and purchase a unique wood carving. 
  2. Come to the quick carve auctions on Thursday and Saturday and bid on a quick carve. Go to the Town tent to sign up for a bid paddle. The quick carves start at 6 pm and carvers have one hour to create a one-of-a-kind carving. Bid on a carving at the live auction that will take place in the park (near the carving area). 
  3. Meet the carver and purchase the masterpiece they are carving for the competition. You have four days to haggle with our carvers and finally buy that large wood carving for your property! How do I do this? Go to the event, watch the transformation and talk to the carver about your bid.
