Get ready to witness a thrilling spectacle as the adrenaline-pumping Chainsaw Competition comes to the City of Eupora! This celebration of raw power and precision promises to captivate audiences as skilled chainsaw carvers from all corners of the country and as far away as the United Kingdom gear up to showcase their prowess in handling the roaring chainsaws.
World-class chainsaw carvers will be packing their tools and heading to Eupora for our one-of-a-kind chainsaw carving competition at Garan Property, 55 Government Avenue, Eupora, Mississippi starting Wednesday, September 25th through Saturday, September 28th.
As the chainsaws crank to life, the air will be filled with the scent of freshly cut wood and deafening sound of engines roaring. Ten (10) talented carvers will go head-to-head, creating works of art right before your eyes. Support these incredible artists by exploring their booths, where remarkable sculptures are available for purchase.
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 auction on Saturday and bid on a quick carve. Go to the Information Tent to sign up for a bid number. The quick carves starts on Friday 9/27 at 10am and Friday and Saturday events at 6 pm. The carvers have one hour to create a one of a kind carving. Bid on a carving at the live auction that will take place on Saturday 9/28 at 6pm.
