Ironfest 2019

In a land far, far away, there was a Kingdom hidden deep within a lush valley where a fire breathing dragon turned the very rock to molten steel.
It was here, at the centre of the dragon’s lair, that the clans would gather each year at the changing of the season when the leaves streamed red and gold from the trees, and the breeze scattered their richness across the land.

This magical valley was called The Kingdom of Ironfest.

In the twentieth year of the reign of the Kingdom, all creatures great and small, all clans, civilised and wild, are heralded to gather to create the magical story of “Ironfest – Once Upon a Time” in this, the twentieth year of The Kingdom of Ironfest 2019.

When: 27 & 28 April 2019
Where: Lithgow Showground
