Steel Yard Iron Pour & Sims Fest

(10.22) The Steel Yard’s Annual Iron Pour is back and this year admission is free! The return of the Iron Pour also marks the first-ever Sims Avenue Street Festival. The street will be closed down and all the venues like Revival Brewing, ISCo, and New Harvest will be coming together to throw one helluva block party. But wait, there’s more. From the Steel Yard:

 . . . we’ve partnered with all of our neighbors on Sims Avenue to produce the Inaugural Sims Avenue Festival! Everyone on Sims will be out in force, selling beer and cocktails, food, flowers, hot, sauce, ice cream. . . and more! More than twenty artists will take over the center of the street. . . while demonstrations of blacksmithing, glass blowing and more will mesmerize.

As for the main event, “The Steel Yard will light up the skies over Sims Avenue in Providence as we melt over 2,000 pounds of luminous iron in our custom-built tilt furnace! A trained pour crew will activate larger than life sculptures with fire and molten metal. It’s a one-of-a-kind industrial art event.”

Free, Iron Pour & Sims Fest, 4pm to 9pm, Saturday, October 22, Sims Avenue, (directions)


Special merch has been prepared for this inaugural event; hoodies and T-shirts feature original artwork designed and illustrated by Katherine Bishop and Adam Kelley. (These gals remind of “The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.”)
