2016 Austin Forging Competition says
Come join us for a truly unique and unforgettable day of friendly competition at the Community Forge, a blacksmith shop at Community First! Village. Some of the best artist blacksmiths from across North America are converging at our humble shop for an Iron Chef-style contest to see who can hand-forge the most impressive work of metal art! Join us for a lively demonstration of creative contemporary metalwork that will be a whole lot of fun to watch.

In addition to the main event, you'll enjoy tours of Community First! Village, live music, yard games, live screen-printing, and food catered by our residents!

You will also have a chance to purchase some of the forged products that our formerly-homeless resident blacksmiths have been making at the Community Forge. Our craftsmen earn 100% of the profit from their sales, providing them a dignified and modest income.

Doors open at 9am. Forging will start promptly at 10am, so be sure to arrive on time to see all the action!

Admission is free. Families and children welcome.
