I have attended this Festival since its very first year in 1992, with only 2014 missed (when I was leading the Turf to Tools project at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden Scotland.)
On August 8, I will be attending the regular monthly meeting of the Ontario Artisan Blacksmith's Association.
The demonstration will be Lloyd Johnson forging a replica of an 1800's large adze.
Any Blacksmith's reading in the Ontario region are highly recommended to attend!
