Whittle the Wood - Rendezvous

Whittle the Wood Rendezvous is Craig, Colorado's premier event, featuring head-to-head competition between a dozen experienced wood carvers.
Watch as carvers begin with a tree trunk and create a masterpiece in four short days.
And don't miss Friday's live music and the festival's conclusion on Saturday, as we welcome a nationally recognized headliner band for a free concert.
We also celebrate Saturday with the Wake the Whittler 5K, arts and crafts vendors, carver awards, plenty of delicious food and a car show downtown.
Don't miss the fun!
