Hammer-In Blacksmithing Festival

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Blacksmiths from the tri-state area convene for the Hammer-In Festival in Greene County!

This annual event occurs on the third Saturday in April at the W.A. Young & Sons Foundry and Machine Shop. Join Rivers of Steel for an amazing, behind-the-scenes historical experience!
Recognized by the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark in 2017, the W.A. Young & Sons Foundry and Machine Shop is a marvel by its mere existence. It is the only surviving and functional example of our nation’s twentieth century evolution from local blacksmith shops to mass production machining facilities.
On Saturday, April 20th, we’ll open the doors, switch on the machines and invite area blacksmiths to demonstrate how this unique machine shop operated! Blacksmith demonstrations, tours, and aluminum pours occur throughout the day.
Members from the Pittsburgh Area Artist-Blacksmiths Association and the Appalachian Blacksmiths Association will demonstrate blacksmithing processes and auction off their artworks to support the Machine Shop, PAABA, and ABA.
