July 27 - July 28
This is a unique event for UMBA. We get to set up our teaching tent and invite the public to experience blacksmithing On the Other Side of the Anvil. We hold the hot work and our guests swing the hammer. What could be more exciting than that? And we make beautiful things and memories to last a lifetime.
We need a crew of 10 to fully staff the tent – 1 smith for each of our 6 forges, 2 people working the gate, and 2 smiths waiting to give someone a break. The Midwest FireFest supplies our guests. The line forms early at our tent, and for 2 days the fires never die.
Please consider volunteering your time. You don’t have to commit to the whole weekend. Contact the event organizer to find out how you can help.
