EVART — Woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike will find numerous activities to enjoy at the Evart Roundup.
The annual woodcarving event will take place from Wednesday, June 8, to Saturday, June 11, at the Osceola County Fairgrounds. This year’s roundup will feature more than 60 workshops including caricature, fish carving with power tools, woodburning and ornament-crafting, according to Floyd Rhadigan, organizer.
“The roundup will have everything you could possibly like to try in the realm of woodworking,” he said.
More than 600 people are expected to attend this year’s event. For non-woodworkers, sewing, quilting and other craft activities also are available. Workshops are on first-come, first-serve basis. Instruction is free, but participants will have to pay for their materials.
Other activities include an ice cream social on Wednesday by donation, and a blanket trade carvers swap. The event also will have home-cooked breakfast and lunch available from the fairgrounds Blue Ribbon Cafe and Evart Lions Club.
