Ironfest Lithgow NSW Australia 2015 18th 19th April


Recommended Posts

Its on again, Ironfest at Lithgow, dates are 18th to the 19th of April 2015 gates open at 9am till 5pm Saturday, 10am to 4pm Sunday.  Ironfest is held in Lithgow NSW Australia.  Lithgow is about 3.5 hours west of Sydney NSW Australia.  Ironfest is held in Lithgow showground.  All blacksmiths that call themselves blacksmiths should attend, and even if you dont call yourself a blacksmith come anyway.  Theres also jousting, gun battles, stalls, food, horses, falconry, weaponmaking.  The theme of Ironfest this year is Gypsy Dreadnought.

If you need info you can contact Ironfest direct via their facebook page or their website, or any questions that I can be helpfull with you can contact me.  The Artist Blacksmiths Assoc NSW will also be attending as far as I know.

G'day John,

These are about all I took.  The major difference this year was performance by the group of armoured ex-army vehicles; small tank, White half-track(s), Ferret Scout cars, Saladin/Saracen a.p.c. and others.  Did an impressive pyrotechnics battle against the Axis crew and their large machine gun/ cannon thingy.  Things bangin' and blowing up all over!  Do searches on youtube, starting with 'Ironfest 2015'- stuff is up already.

Then there was the glorius blacksmith crew, it was a fun weekend- thanks guys.  Monster- the smoked pork was devine (smoked on site).  

The weather was amazingly mild for Lithgow... then the floods hit Sydney...

See you all next year.
