Chainsaw Wizards

Chainsaw Wizards - Tree Carving Event

Alberta's biggest tree carving festival will be back during the May long weekend to welcome the spring!
Not just an event, Chainsaw Wizards is a project that was born to honour the trees that were cut down for the berms by giving them a new life in the Valley.
Save the date on your calendar to come witness the talent of the wizards as they weave their carving magic in front of your eyes by the minute.
This event is for all ages, food and live music will be a part of the experience! We look forward to seeing you there!
