This three day event is a unique opportunity to interact with professional carvers, artisans and enthusiasts as they turn blocks of limestone into one-of-a-kind works of art using traditional tools and methods.

On the 24th, 25th and 26th of June 2022, stone carvers from Canada and beyond will congregate at the famous Sparks Street outdoor Mall in Ottawa Ontario to display their skills and creativity. Using hand tools only, participants will have 18 hours over three days to complete their pieces. The public is invited to enjoy the sights and sounds of this traditional work site and to engage with the carvers. Following the carving, on the afternoon of Sunday June 26th at 2:00pm, all pieces will be auctioned to the public, with proceeds being donated to Ottawa Innercity Ministries.

The Canadian Stone Carving Festival is not a competition and is open to carvers of all levels of experience from beginner to professional. This event was created to promote craft fellowship amongst carvers, to build public awareness about the trade and to raise money for charity.
