Iron Horse Festival

Iron Horse Festival is taking place August 20th to August 23rd at Railway Park! The festival has found its new home at Railway Park, which has been undergoing site improvements this summer. Alongside site improvements we are working hard on festival expansions.

Iron Horse Festival is bringing back the community stage! The Forest City Casting Community Stage will be open all weekend with FREE live entertainment. We have bigger names heading to the MyFM Main Stage! Canadian heavy metal band Helix will rock the main stage Thursday August 20. Canada’s rising country duo Autumn Hill headline Rock n Country Night, Saturday August 22!

We are bringing back FreshFest, a celebration of local farmers & their produce taking place Thursday August 20. On Sunday August 23 we are introducing a new event, “Roots, Brews & BBQ”, a nationally sanctioned BBQ competition also featuring live entertainment, food and local beer and wine for attendees.

Our midway, courtesy of Roberson Amusements is bigger and better than ever! Kids Junction is filled with lots of activities for children of all ages. There will be medieval and battle reenactments Thursday and Saturday. Ray’s Reptile Zoo will be making an appearance Sunday.
