2021 IRON TO ART FESTIVAL @ JOHNSTOWN, PA

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.
