Enjoy a uniquely Montevallo event with live chainsaw wood carving, woodworking artist vendors, a whittling contest, live music, and a wooden boat race. There will also be a classic car show, a variety of children’s activities, and food vendors on site. Festival-goers will find everything from wooden bowls, vases, jewelry, and toys, to handcrafted furniture, knives, ornaments, and more. Watch chainsaw artists carve one-of-a-kind pieces throughout the day, and bid on them at our auction!
Tinglewood Festival is inspired by a special section of Orr Park, where local artist Tim Tingle has carved faces and creatures into the dead parts of living cedar trees since a fateful ice storm in 1993. The festival is organized by the Montevallo Chamber of Commerce, Montevallo Main Street, and Montevallo Arts Collaborative as a signature event for the City of Montevallo.
Any interested artist vendors or event sponsors are invited to contact the Tinglewood Festival Committee at 205-665-1519 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how to participate! For more information, visit tinglewoodfestival.com.
