Woodcarvers & Whittlers Festival
October 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
“To promote the unique history of Columbus, carved out of the wilderness, and encourage the continuance of the handmade arts through education, public display, and civic involvement.”
The Discover Columbus Committee announces an event for the whole family. We are hosting a Woodcarvers and Whittlers Festival on October 19, 2019. The festival promises to be a unique fun-filled day with a wide variety of local and regional amateur and professional wood carvers, whittlers, turners, and suppliers showing, selling, and giving demonstrations. This family friendly festival is scheduled on the historic Antebellum Courthouse lawn and on Gibson Street (if needed) in conjunction with the Columbus Farmers’ Market on Courthouse Street.
