This event brings carvers from across North America to Campbell River, where they compete in a number of categories over a five day period. It draws a great many people to Frank James Park, along the water in Willow Point, to watch the carvers as they take a massive trunk and turn it into a work of art.
At the end of the event some carvings are sold, some are kept in private collections, and the majority are distributed around town. To date there are more than 300 carvings decorating the landscape of Campbell River.
(Carvings shown are from the 2012 competition.)
