When is this event?
An event that buzzes!
Carve Carrbridge, also known as the Scottish Open Chainsaw Carving Competition attracts over 20 chainsaw carvers from around the world to compete and create something truly special in just 4 hours. Carvings are judged on artistic merit, technical difficulty, and originality.
In 2022 the youngest ever winner was Sam Bowsher aged 24. Sam has been coming to Carve Carrbridge since he was about 6 years old, watching his Dad and multiple winner, Pete Bowsher in action. Sam made his debut at Carve Carrbridge in 2019 and also won the Discovery Channel Canada’s TV event ‘A Cut Above’ in 2022.
The competition at Carve Carrbridge is fierce and the creations by these talented folk are awe inspiring.
If you are around the Cairngorms you might come across some carvings bought in the Grand Auction and the Carving Trail around Carrbridge showcases many from past years.
The event is organised and run by over 70 local volunteers with support from a number of local businesses and the longevity of this event is testament to the the community spirit that has brought it to this milestone.
