Festival Ironwood Time

The music groups are all booked, the layout of tents and equipment is sketched out, and the new Chamber live-feed webcam is anxiously awaiting its 1st viewing of Festival Ironwood 2018.  Opening day is Wednesday, 18 July and activities run through Sunday, 22 July.  For an hour-by-hour schedule, go to the "events" heading on our homepage and click on "Festival Ironwood."   Festival Ironwood is financed entirely by individual and group donations, and organized by the Festival Ironwood Committee.  Each year there are always both new things and old favorites, from a 2-day outdoor pool tournament to the famous "World's Largest Duck Pick."  The Chamber is sponsoring a Thursday evening Dart Tournament at the Depot, starting at 6:30, and you don't want to miss the Saturday Old Depot Car show and arts & crafts sales.  Throughout the entire festival there will be a wide variety of food, beverages, music, games, historic vehicles, arts & crafts, and daily 50/50 raffles.   Come on down to Depot Park in Downtown Ironwood July 18-22 and join in the fun!
