Fire department to host Carving in the Ozarks April 20-21

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The Eureka Springs Volunteer Fire Department will host Carving in the Ozarks on Friday, April 20, and Saturday, April 21, at 4028E Van Buren St. in Eureka Springs.

This year, more than 20 carvers will travel from across the country to participate in this competition event. This is a free event to the public where professional carvers can be observed creating masterpieces of their choosing carved from logs using chainsaws and various power tools in a competition with each other. Carvers will be creating all day on both days of the event from approximately 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This will be the 14th year for the event, which is a fundraiser for the volunteer fire department. On Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m., a live auction will be held featuring carvings created in the competition over the two-day period. The proceeds from the auction are used to purchase equipment for the firefighters. More than 40 creations of all types will be available in the auction, giving everyone something of interest to bid on.
