The Chaptacular Chainsaw Carving Bash is the second largest chainsaw carving event in North America. Each year, over 70 carvers gather for fun and fellowship in Gray, GA to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Carvers donate pieces to both silent and live auctions and participate in live carving competitions. In 2017, the event will be held on November 10th and 11th and will be open to the public from 9 am – 5 pm. Spectators can enjoy food trucks, shopping, and more. Since the inception of Chaptacular in 2006, more than $167,000 has been raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event started with a small group of chainsaw carvers that came together to raise money to find a cure for CF. It has since grown to attract world renowned carvers and 3,000+ spectators annually. In 2016, we raised more than $92,000 and continue to grow each year.
