The Northwest Ohio Blacksmiths hold regular business meetings on the 3rd Saturday of the months of January, March, July, September and November. These meetings are held at at the shops of different members. Family members are invited and there is a pot-luck meal.
On the 1st Saturday of all the other months (except May) we have "Open Forge" meetings, for smiths only, at various blacksmith shops. Bring your own sack lunch for these meetings. See the "Meeting Details" page.
The 1st weekend in May is our annual "Hammer-In" held at Historic Auglaize Village near Defiance, Ohio. This is a Friday - Saturday - Sunday event. We invite a well known smith to demonstrate his/her skills. Attendance at this event requires a registration fee. You will find detailed information on the "Hammer-In" pages .
