Story submitted by Yosemite Sierra Visitor's Bureau

The annual Woodcarver’s Rendezvous is happening in Oakhurst April 15 through 21.

Woodcarvers of all skill levels will be heading to this mountain town just south of the entrance to Yosemite National Park to show off their skills, develop new abilities and just enjoy each other’s shared interest.

The event has grown in popularity in the five years it’s been happening. About 100 carvers from throughout central California – and even further – are expected to attend.

"In addition to seminars and demonstrations, spouses can take advantage of crafts and other programs. Or they can enjoy a week of rest and shopping in our wonderful town, either way, it will be a great week for everyone,” said Larry Smith, organizer of the event.

The registration fee of $100 for a single person or $150 for a couple covers all events for the entire week including morning coffee, a pair of dinners set throughout the week and a potluck on Friday, April 20.

Those who aren't carvers but do appreciate art may want to attend the open house scheduled for Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so people can see the works created during the rendezvous.

"The carvers create some absolutely amazing works of art that are truly stunning," said Jarrod Lyman, director of PR for the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau. "Anyone who is an art lover will want to come to the open house to see the creations of these very talented people."

Attendees need to bring their own tools and other equipment.
