Chainsaw Sculpture Capital of the World
Chetwynd has beautifully handcrafted chainsaw sculptures of mythical beasts, athletes, movie characters, gods, monsters, animals and more.
The chainsaw carving project began as part of the Rendezvous ’92 Committee, which was created to help with the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the construction of the Alaska (Alcan) highway.
These sculptures can be found outside or inside local businesses. With a map in hand, stroll through town for photo opportunities with sculptures. Now there are more than 120 carvings around town. Many carvings are from contests, as the town holds a contest annually.
