2021 SOFA Quad-State Conference

24 - 26, SEPTEMBER, 2021

Location: Troy, Ohio

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.





14 - 16, OCTOBER, 2021

For 48 years, ABANA has not had a place to call its home. In 2020, the Board of Directors voted to give ABANA a permanent home in Johnstown, PA. Johnstown has a rich historical presence in the Steel and Iron industry. It only made sense that ABANA’s first permanent home be in the historical steel town known as Johnstown. In 2021, ABANA will host this inaugural Festival to welcome the ABANA membership to Johnstown. We have lots in store for the Festival. Check out our demonstrators.
