COOKSBURG – The Sawmill Center for the Arts will hold one of its signature events next weekend as the Chainsaw Carvers’ Round-Up will take place Sept. 15-17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
The Chainsaw Carvers’ Round-Up is a much-anticipated annual event, where attendees enjoy watching artists carve masterpieces from simple logs. Carvers from around the region spend the weekend actively working, and then auction off their finished pieces. Auctions will be held at 4 p.m. on Sept. 16 and at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 17. The artists will also have some of their previously-completed work for sale on site.
This festival features vendors selling food, crafts and wood-carving-related supplies. As always, the Sawmill’s own Craft Market will be open and offer handmade items from 46 different vendors.
