Description

Billed as ‘An Arts Festival with a Metal Edge’ Ironfest is an annual festival held in the New South Wales city of Lithgow. The festival involves artists and blacksmith working with metal, as well as historical re-enactors, musicians, and performers. The re-enactors include those who focus on the medieval period, and the entertainment for the Ironfest 2013 includes jousting. The main page for Ironfest includes a photograph of nine knights wearing plate armour and helmets and carrying shields and swords. The festival began in 2010 and is held at the Kingdom of Ironfest (the Lithgow Showground).
