Halloween Iron Pour at the Steel Yard

Posted

This theatrical display of the industrial arts attracts over 1,500 people including artists, fabricators, families, and friends to the Steel Yard. For this performance, artists harness the power of our custom-built iron tilt-furnace to pour over 2,500 pounds of luminous, molten iron. People return annually not only for the sparky performance and the numerous steel and iron props that we build in our own studio, but also for the phenomenal local music and food. It's always a sell-out event so get your tickets early!

WHERE: The Steel Yard, 27 Sims Ave., Providence
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 21; gates open at 5 p.m.
COST: $10 in advance. Tickets day of and at the door are $15
