QUADSTATE

QuadState is, in a word, incredible. Fairgrounds, competitions, demonstrations, food, fun, family, all packed into three extraordinary days in the perfect Fall weather. No wonder blacksmiths from around the globe make this a must-attend event, year after year.

I saw a smith stand with his hammer, thus,
The whilst his iron did on the anvil cool.
