Fire on the Mountain Blacksmith Festival is just around the corner!

April 28th is going to be another great day of celebrating the history of blacksmithing and broadening awareness of quality contemporary iron work. We look forward to a fun day for families, kids, and metal workers. This is a great opportunity to sell your work, network with other blacksmiths, shop for tools, and demonstrate your talents and techniques. 

This year's Master Blacksmiths are Nol Putnam, April Franklin, and Michael l. Chmielewski.  

We still have a few spaces available for vendor and demonstrators. We have extended th
e deadline for signing up to expand the number of blacksmiths from previous years. We would love to get more tool vendors. Please encourage your friends to sign up as well.

You can find and download an application here.

We look forward to seeing you in downtown Spruce Pine!
