2015 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational

The 2015 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational will feature 9 Professional Chainsaw Carvers from all over the US and Canada, competing and producing some of the most amazing sculptures you will ever see.

Chainsaw Sculpture is a relatively new art form that has gained enthusiasts all over the world. The delicate ballet the carvers perform with a powerful chainsaw is mesmerizing. Come and see what all the buzz and chips flying is all about!

The 2015 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational is located at the North end of Balloon Fiesta Park.

We will be raffling ECHO chainsaws and sculptures on competition days to benefit the Albuquerque Area Firefighters Random Acts. We will also have a live auction on each of the competition days with an option to "Buy it Now" for those who may not be able to return for the live auction. Auction/Raffle will begin at approximately 5pm. Each morning will feature a 90-minute quick carve, starting promptly at 8:30am. You will be absolutely amazed to see what these artists can do with a log, a chainsaw and 90 minutes!

The theme this year is "Where Dreams Take Flight" which will lend itself to some very creative pieces.

Carvings will be available for purchase. Shipping and handling will be available.

We hope you come by and see this fun and fascinating art form in live action. For more information you can contact organizer and Pro Carver Mark Chavez at 1-505-440-8148, or email sandiabearcompany@msn.com
