Making Memories

Join internationally recognized Carousel Artist, George P. Nowack, as he, once again, “takes to the Road” with a demonstration of the Art of Carousel Carving!

On Sunday, September 17, George will serve as a “guest Artist” at the 13th Annual Farm Day Festival located at the Munnell Run Farm, near Mercer, Pa.

For over 25 years, he traveled the Nation demonstrating in innumerable venues his Art, keeping alive one of the most beloved and treasured forms of our American Arts Heritage. Carving in the method utilized by the traditional Carousel Artists from 1865-1917, George is a hand-carver…one of the last.

Over the years, he has delighted audiences in hundreds of locations throughout America with his Creations. His work has been recognized by the National Carousel Association, the U.S. State Department, innumerable Amusement Parks, Museums, organizations, and groups.

Currently, George is completing his replica of the original Carousel Lion which graced the machine at Conneaut Lake Park until 1987. It is this Lion which will be the focus of the demonstration on September 17. Upon the completion of this animal, he will begin work on a replica of the original Carousel Goat which delighted visitors to the Carousel located at Pittsburgh’s long-gone but fondly remembered, West View Park.

You are invited to witness the demonstration George’s Art at the Munnell Run Farm Day celebration. Bring along the entire Family…re-spark all your delightful childhood memories of days spent riding the Carousel of your Dreams!

If your group or organization wishes to schedule one of George’s demonstrations, which includes a presentation of regional Amusement Park History, please contact him at, or 814-795-6888.
