Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Wood carving artists from across the region are all gathered in one place this weekend, for a wood arts festival.

The 58 exhibitors set up their displays tonight ahead of the 37th annual show put on by the Red River Valley Wood Carvers.

Artists from the tri-state area and Canada participate.

The event features live demonstrations.

This year, they decided to change the name of the event to the "International Wood Arts Festival."

Barry Kutzer- Show Chairman: "We feel that that better describes, really, what you're finding here. It's not just a bunch of whittling. It's actually some very, very fine art."

The show is at the Doublewood Inn Saturday and Sunday beginning at 10 a.m.
