Beer & Blacksmithing

May 18 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


Join us on May 18, 2019 for the inaugural Beer and Blacksmithing!  

Experience the sights and sounds of the art of the forge. Bring the family to view blacksmithing through the centuries in action on the Oval at Stratford Hall. From pre-colonial methods to naval blacksmithing, the utilitarian and decorative process will be on display all day as 6 different blacksmiths make an assortment of iron products.

Complementing the blacksmiths will be the art of brewing as offered by local craft breweries. Take advantage of this opportunity to sample 5 local craft breweries of the Northern Neck of Virginia right at Stratford Hall. Breweries will begin pouring by 11am, last call is 4:30pm.

The event will also feature food truck vendors, children’s activities, and free Great House tours all day.
