Racine & Me: 10th Annual Chainsaw Carving & Art Festival


RACINE, WI (CBS 58) -- The 10th annual Chainsaw Carving & Art Festival is coming up! It's a celebration of trees and nature. The event takes place at River Bend Nature Center on Sunday, October 2nd, 2022 from 9am – 2pm with live auction at 3pm.

On center stage are the chainsaw carvers, who release works of art from pine logs as you watch. All carvings will go to a lively public auction at 3:00pm. If you’ve never bid at a live auction before, this is your chance to join the fun, and possibly take home a unique piece of art.

Plan to spend some time at River Bend…there’s plenty more to do and see:

-Art fair featuring a wide variety of artists displaying and selling their work
