Fitchburg Forge-In
A day of smithing and more

This is a chance to watch a number of smiths at many levels of skill working hard and fast to beat the clock AND each other.

There will be three competitive sessions where the smiths will have to complete projects in 1, 1, and 2 hours respectively. More info at the Fitchburg Forge-In website.

With competitive categories for beginner, intermediate, and advanced smiths, no entrance fee, and cash prizes, this is a fun event to compete in. Come out and cheer us on, or even better, bring your gear and compete.

In addition to the blacksmithing competition, there will be artisans, antique dealers, and a pumpkin carving competition.
