Time travel to Ironfest

Medieval hordes meet Dr Who at Ironfest on April 20 & 21.

Last year celebrated the end of the Mayan calendar, but we’re all still here so Ironfest will re-live another year to embrace the theme Time Travel on April 20 and 21.

Now in its 13th year, the annual “festival with a metal edge” was the brainchild of artist/sculptor Macgregor Ross, who first held it in 2000 to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the birth of steel in Australia at Lithgow. About 400 people turned up.

Today Ironfest attracts more than 12,000 people and is recognised as an event of state significance supported by Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism, Destination NSW, Lithgow City Council, Delta Electricity and a host of smaller supporters.
