McKenzie River Chainsaw Arts Festival
Sadly postponed to 2021 due to Covid
Come see some of the World’s Best Chainsaw Carving Artists design sculptures out of logs! Watch them transform logs into giant bigfoots, bears, eagles, owls, furniture and more! Fun for the entire family!
The McKenzie River Chainsaw Arts Festival features other artisans and crafters as well.
This is a fantastic site to see. Some of the creations are so impressive you have to see them firsthand.
2019’s Chainsaw Arts Festival featured some great live bands, some local microbrews, cider and Oregon wines. Face painting for the kids and some great food vendors.
This editors favorite was the smoked meats by Chris Parazoo – you got to try his smoked beef brisket or his tri-tip philly cheese steak sandwiches!! (Chris is scheduled for 2020!!)
