15th Annual Woodcarving Competition and Sale – Postponed to 2021

After much consideration the NB Woodcarving Association Board has decided to postpone the 15th Annual Woodcarving Competition and Sale to August of the following year.

We believe that this is the best move for the safety of our community at this time.

On a positive side this give our competitors a whole extra year to work on more carvings! We are expecting 2021 to be an even more spectacular.

In the meantime stay safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021!

A message to our carving community

During this pandemic crisis we hope that you and all those close to you are well and self-isolating. Carving is a great way to pass the time during these difficult days.

We will be monitoring the advice of the New Brunswick government and the New Brunswick Chief Medical Officer concerning the New Brunswick 2020 Wood Carving Competition and Sale. We will advise further as time passes about the show. We are very hopeful that the show will proceed, and we continue to make plans to that end.

We will advise further regarding the show in due course.
