Chainsaw Sculpture is a relatively new art form that has gained enthusiasts all over the world. The delicate ballet the carvers perform with a powerful chainsaw is mesmerizing. Come and see what all the buzz and chips flying is all about!

The AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational is located at the North end of Balloon Fiesta Park.

Each morning will feature a 90-minute quick carve, starting promptly at 8:00 a.m. You will be absolutely amazed to see what these artists can do with a log, a chainsaw and 90 minutes!

Guests and spectators will have the opportunity to take one of the beautiful carvings home with them as a wonderful souvenir! There will be a live auction held each competition day, beginning at approximately 5:00 p.m.

Carvings will be available for purchase. Shipping and handling will be available.
