Join us for the 6th Annual Fire Camp Festival and the Steel Yard Open House this summer! We're inviting spectators to spend the day the Steel Yard, engage in our foundry and experience the magic of the industrial arts first hand! Our gates will be open for this fun, free and family-friendly event. Guests will enjoy music, amazing food & beverages from local businesses, a Yardie art & crafts sale, as well as live demonstrations in welding, blacksmithing, ceramics and jewelry!

Fire Camp is a free, one-day festival for all ages that features demonstrations of many of the industrial arts practiced at the Steel Yard. Attendees can create their own decorative cast iron tiles, witness blacksmith demonstrations, get their hands dirty playing with clay, and much more!

Fire Camp will also include an Industrial Yard Sale that is sure to turn heads. Join us and enjoy a guided tour of the studio, tasty treats sold by local vendors, and music.
