The Cheshire Game and Country Fair – August 29th & 30th 2021

A new event for new times.

Due to the current pandemic for this year we have replaced the English Open Chainsaw Competition with the very Best of British

This competition will be split into two groups of carvers over the 2-days. We will be inviting UK-based carvers to attend in one of the two categories.

An expert competition and a novice competition for those that have recently started chainsaw carving and entering chainsaw competitions and for some this may be their first competition.

The expert competition will be made up of those that you may have seen at our shows before with a number of them having entered international carving events all around the world.

We will be asking the competitors to take part in the “full power” competition taken from the English open competition, this means each carver has 15 hours over the two days from 8 till 6 on day one and 8 till 1 on day two to complete one main carving, this must be constructed from a single log, selected from the log draw. Full power means you can make use of any chainsaw power tool to create your sculpture within the allotted time.
