History of the Santa Cruz Saw Festival

Every August, the IMSA has a saw festival in Felton and Santa Cruz . It’s wonderful fun, and it’s been going for over 40 years now. Unfortunately, due to Covid and the pandemic, the festival has been cancelled the last two years. Hopefully, they will be back next year, but until then, you can watch this short film about the history of the festival and you can learn a little about Tom Scribner, Santa Cruz’s most famous saw player. You can also see some of the regular saw festival attendees. Maybe you will see some of them in person next year!
