The 2018 15th Annual National Road Chainsaw Carving Festival, managed by the Confluence Lions Club, will host chainsaw carvers from all over the United States and other countries. They will be carving, displaying and selling their carved items to the public. There were 39 carvers that participated last year.
Each carver is asked to donate one or more (maximum of 4) carvings to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The auction is held on Saturday June 16 at 3:00 p.m. Don't miss the opportunity to own this "extreme" art. Net proceeds from the festival benefits the Somerset County Blind Association, an organization whose mission is to provide social, vocational, rehabilitative and educational services for people who are blind or whose vision is impaired. Over the past 14 festivals, the Confluence Lions Club has donated $130,300 to the Somerset County Blind Association.
