Due to Covid restrictions This year's event has had to be cancelled
Our apologies to everyone and we now look forward to next year 11th September

If you have a portable seat, we suggest you bring and use it as it is a long day if standing and we are unable to provide seating
We will NOT have a beer tent on the field and the Bowling club will unfortunately not be available this rear due to current restrictions
We are conscious of the need to currently stay safe indoors due to the Corvid 19 sweeping the world, however, planning for this years event is going ahead and our hopes for another successful event are high.
Meantime, Please stay safe
This Chainsaw Carving Spectacular event in the North of North Ayrshire is now entering it's 3rd year and will hopefully take place again in the Manse Field Beith (subject to confirmation) or (Possibly Beith primary)
Set up will be on the Friday evening when most of the carvers arrive.

Due to the assistance we have received from the LOTTERY there will be no visitor entry fee or need for wrist bands.
Our previous events in 2018 and 2019 were a great success and we intend building on them for the future
We have 11 carvers and all the 22 or more carvings produced will be for sale in the auction at the end of the day, If any visitors would like to purchase one of the main or quick carvings, it is recommended that sufficient cash is available as few of the carvers have facility of taking cash by card. There are several cash machines in the town.
The quick carving will take place after the main event, these items will also be for sale.
All profits will benefit local Community and projects and help us progress for the future.
Food and soft drinks will be available all day from various vendors on the field.
2020 sees the return of the now established Chainsaw Carving event in the Garnock Valley on Saturday 12th Sept. This fun and creative demonstration will provide an inspiring spectator event, there will also be community activities, family games and visitors can enjoy some of the locally sourced produce and food stalls.
Currently there are 11 international carvers confirmed to take part in the 3rd Garnock Valley Carves Carving event, including 2 lady carvers; showcasing a spectacular piece of performance art demonstrating astonishing skill and talent from across the globe using mainly chainsaws.
Besides the event itself, we have a wide variety of interactive stalls and attractions for all ages to enjoy and many opportunities to feel inspired and learn some new skills.
This year we will have the World Champion axe throwers Braveheart Axe Throwing demonstrating and teaching their skills for a modest sum.
A cross section of community groups from the Garnock Valley will have activities and stalls for participants to interact with as well as face painting, a children’s tent, Story telling, wood carving workshops, outdoors woodland crafts and games and pony rides. There will also be several bands playing at various times throughout the day too.(This is of course dependent on current guidelines)
