The Dragon Forge Experience

A HOT New Experience Awaits You

Forge Your Own Metal Adventure from the Mouths of Fire Breathing Dragons
Welcome to the realm of dragons! This is not your average blacksmith demonstration; join us for an adventure in which YOU wield the hammer to forge your own piece. We bring you beyond the barrier of observer and into the forge itself. Here, you become the hero of your very own blacksmithing adventure. Your unique memento begins to glow in the breath of our fire breathing forges and is at the command of your hammer blows with the guidance of our professional smiths. An interactive, hands-on, blend of history and fantasy that is fiery forging fun for the whole family ages 6 and up. No skills needed.

Are you brave enough to stand the heat of the Dragon Forge Experience? Walk-ins welcome with availability or saveth some time and bookth online.

Wolgemut. Sounds like "Volga" (as in the river) and "moot" (as in point), Wolgemut is an ancient Germanic word which simply means "to be in a good mood" and is both the name as well as the mission of this high-energy early music troupe. The band, under the leadership of artistic director Michael Gartner, delivers a joyful, raucous show that makes early music fresh and exciting. Founded in 1997 in Berlin, Germany, Wolgemut has appeared at music and historical festivals throughout Europe and the United States.

My name is Opal Wispopal Thistle Koi, but to save seconds, You may call Me Opal The Fairy. I have yet to learn how to speak human, however what I lack in speech, I make up for in whimsy. Through expression, movement, and my secret power of bubbles I spread joy for children of all ages!
