International Blacksmiths Day – May 23, 2015 -Every year on the 4th Saturday in May is International Blacksmith Day. This day is to celebrate all the blacksmiths in the world as well as to promote the craft by opening up your smithy and inviting visitors to come in and view the craft, maybe swing a hammer too!
What are you going to be doing on that day to celebrate blacksmithing?
