Hammer-In Blacksmithing Festival
Join Rivers of Steel for an amazing, behind-the-scenes historical experience! On Saturday, April 15th, we’ll open the doors, switch on the machines and invite area blacksmiths to demonstrate just how this unique machine shop operated! Guided tours and blacksmith demonstrations occur throughout the day. Members from the Pittsburgh Area Artists Blacksmiths Association and the Appalachian Blacksmiths Association will demonstrate blacksmithing processes and auction off their artworks to support the Machine Shop, PAABA and ABA. Festivities begin at 9 am, with a welcoming ceremony at noon, followed by the auction a 1 pm and an aluminum pour courtesy of Rivers of Steel Arts. Admission is free and refreshments are available for purchase. A family-friendly event, don’t miss this opportunity to watch the past come alive!
