Wood, Wine, & Blues

Mark your calendars and save the date for Storm Lake, Iowa’s annual Wood, Wine & Blues Festival, Friday, August 19th through Sunday, August 21st in beautiful Sunset Park. Wood, Wine & Blues consists of a three-day chainsaw carving competition with a record eight chainsaw artists from across the country.

During this competition, guests are encouraged to watch the carvings come to life and vote on their favorite for the Vetter Equipment People’s Choice Contest. The event kicks off on Friday as the chainsaw artists begin their masterpiece carvings in Sunset Park. Watch them carve throughout the day and then come back for the quick carve competition. During this time the artists receive 90 minutes to turn a 4-foot log into a work of art. The pieces from the quick carve will be auctioned off to the public Saturday via silent auction.

Live Music will be available throughout the event, different bands from across the United States will be performing throughout the weekend.

Wood, Wine & Blues is FREE to attend! Bring your friends and family and enjoy a unique and exciting weekend experience unlike any other!
