Every year, a lot of national and international blacksmith events, gatherings and symposiums take place in Czech Republic and throughout the world; they are opportunities for blacksmiths and supporters of this beautiful black craft to meet. They are opportunities to meet with friends from the field and talk about work and what’s new in the blacksmith world.........while demonstrating our work to the public (very interesting products are always created)........ I actively engage in such events.
The most famous of those is probably Hefaiston, followed by The Anvils of Brtnice, and Buchlov Forging Festival (Buchlovske Kovani), which is a bit smaller event. As for the intenational events, Ybbsitz and Gotham are worth mentioning, and many more ... The best thing to do is probably to come and experience it personally.
