30th Annual Hammer-In Festival

Join Rivers of Steel for an amazing, behind-the-scenes historical experience!

Recognized by the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark just last year, 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.

Saturday, April 21st, we’ll open the doors, switch on the machines and invite area blacksmiths to demonstrate just how this unique machine shop operated!
Guided tours and blacksmith demonstrations occur throughout the day.

Members from the Pittsburgh Area Artists Blacksmiths Association and the Appalachian Blacksmiths Association will demonstrate blacksmithing processes and auction off their artworks to support the Machine Shop, PAABA and ABA.

Festivities begin at 9 am, with a welcoming ceremony at noon, followed by the auction and an aluminum pour courtesy of Rivers of Steel Arts.

Admission is free and refreshments are available for purchase. A family-friendly event, don’t miss this opportunity to watch the past come alive!
