World Champion Bob King!


Bob King, from Edgewood, WA, started carving in the Fall of 1998 after seeing a local chainsaw carver, carving at the fair.  He entered his first competition after carving only three bears and has been competing ever since. In 2010, Bob was honored with a star in the Carvers Walk of Fame in Mulda, Germany for winning more competitions than anyone in the world! He has been invited to represent the United States in competitions in Germany, England, Scotland, Denmark, Holland ,and Canada.

Welcome to Ocean Shores! 
The Five Star Dealerships Sand and Sawdust Festival celebrates the intrinsic beauty of our area, and the talented artists that are inspired by this natural splendor.   From the forested coastal areas to the sandy shores, there is much to spark the creativity in each of us. Be sure to take time to see the artists in action – enjoy the roar of the saws as you watch a bevy of carvers who will be working at the Convention Center.  The pieces that they create will be auctioned daily, and you may just be witnessing the birth of your next take-home treasure!  Spend some time on the wide swath of beach that is perfect for the ancient art of sand drawing, and learn from Justin the Circler.  Join Form Finders as they teach the tips and tricks to building a magnificent sand sculpture – and then try one of your own.  Visit the Associated Arts of Ocean Shores Juried Fine Arts, 3D & Photography Show in the Convention Center. And don’t miss the great food, vendors, music, and more. You just may discover a new passion. Most of all, enjoy your time in our gorgeous area, and savor the memories of time well spent!  Jody Cadle, President, Board of Directors, Ocean Shores/North Beach Chamber of Commerce.
