2/4/2013
Marion Diehl Recreation Center, 2219 Tyvola Road, will host the 30th Annual Showcase of Woodcarvings on Feb. 16 and 17. The family-friendly event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and is free to attend.
More than 100 carvers from 10 southeastern states will exhibit between 500 and 600 carvings in competition for a grand prize of $1,800. This year's theme is "The Wild Wild West."

The event will also include seminars, demonstrations, vendors for carving supplies, and selling of carvings by nationally-known carvers.

Tom Wolfe, a professional woodcarver from North Carolina who has written several books on the subject, will host a carving competition both days of the show.

The showcase is sponsored by the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club.
