Wood Carving Challenge

Rev up your chainsaws!

We’re proud to present, for the 2nd time, the Festival du Voyageur Wood Carving Challenge! 

Six internationally renowned sculptors, including two stars of HGTV’s Carver Kings and OLN’s Sawdogs, will gather at Voyageur Park and rev up their chainsaws to sculpt spectacular works of art.
