Due to the pandemic this event was canceled last year, but now WE’RE BACK!!

This will be the eighth year for our public demo and education day held at Old Dry Road Farm near Blue Marsh Lake, Wernersville, PA (Berks County) on Saturday August 7 from 9am to 4pm. This is a free, fun, family event to promote the craft of blacksmithing.

There will be forging stations set up for demonstrations and for open forging by members of the public.

For children there will be forging sessions using clay (no fire) to experience what forging is like.

Over the lunch hour there will be a forging contest for chapter members and others to partake in.

A food truck will be on site for food purchases.

Tailgating and sales: no charge for traditional "tail-gate sales" of used equipment, etc. out of your vehicle. $20 fee must be paid to Old Dry Road Farm for other sales (selling your forged products, commercial sales, other craft sales, etc.)

Iron Master Of The Day: To Be Determined

Iron In The Hat Auction.

This will be a big public event for our chapter, so tell friends & family, and publicize it far & near.

Dog friendly event. Held rain or shine.

Directions: it's a bit off the beaten path, so if you can GPS or MapQuest, etc. it might be a good idea to do so. GPS coordinates: N. 40.37039, W. 76.06247

The food stand near the Essig barn has been falling apart over the past few years. Max Ruth, master carpenter and friend of the farm, volunteered to design and construct a new larger stand with increased roof height. Since spring school programs were not held construction proceeded with out disruption to any programs. Max was assisted by his volunteer crew which including Harvey Schaeffer, Dave Johnston, and Dick Schuster. Max has completed one large project for the farm in each of the last few years and the efforts of Max and his crew are most appreciated.
