The purpose of the event is a celebration on woodworking! It is free to everyone that attends, vendors and patrons alike. Last year we gave almost $10,000 dollars away in door and raffle prizes. Every person at the festival got 1 free raffle ticket. This gave the opportunity for everyone to have a chance to win something. In fact, last years grand prize of a Rikon Lathe, stand, and misc tools, was won by somebody with ONLY a free ticket.
This event is a celebration of the woodworking craft and is a valuable addition to our woodworking community. Last year’s event drew woodworking artists, tool makers, and festival participants from Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New York, and Michigan. This years event will be held on Sunday May 6th, 2018, 12pm-6pm. The event location is at the beautiful Sam Beauford Woodshop.
