         9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.
Charcoal Burn begins 9/24/17. See and learn about an ancient craft kept alive even to this day! Join a group of blacksmiths including Randy Wolfe of Bethel Forge as they demonstrate projects and techniques, trade ideas and information, swap tall tales of the forge, and also offer hand forged items for sale. The process of making charcoal in the 18th century will be interpreted all during the week. Blacksmiths are invited to bring along their portable forges, start up fire and join in! Find answers to your questions, and maybe try your hand at a simple forging project. You can also go on a guided tour of the original fort site and siege battleground. This event is free with regular fort admission.
