2015 Halloween Iron Pour 10/24/2015 | 5:00 PM -
Monster versus City
Doors are at 5pm, Pour starts at 7pm
Tickets are $10 at the door
2015 marks an entire decade of the Steel Yard’s Halloween Iron Pour. This theatric display of the industrial arts attracts over 1,000 people including artists, fabricators, families, and friends to 27 Sims Avenue in Providence, RI every year. People come back not only for the sparky performance and the numerous steel and iron props that we build in house, but also for the phenomenal local music and food.
For this event, artists harness the power of the Steel Yard’s custom built, iron pouring tilt furnace to pour over 2,500 pounds of molten iron. In the past the Steel Yard has used liquid iron and the heat of flame to create ferociously erupting volcanoes, Viking funerals, and bubbling and brewing scientist labs before the eyes of the crowd. For your viewing pleasure this October 24th, the Steel Yard team presents Monster versus City, a molten story about Providence’s stand against a fiendish beast.
The Iron Pour has been called one of Providence’s most impressive Halloween parties for families and friends of all ages, and you won’t want to miss out. This year we have performances by Alec K Redfearn and the Eyesores as well as Syzygy.
This event always sells out. Now, for the first time we are offering a limited number of Yardzilla Passes. Your $75 ticket will get you guaranteed access and a dedicated will-call line, two drink tickets and a limited edition Steel Yard Mug. But most importantly, $50 of your ticket is a tax-deductible donation to the Yard! That's right, your Yardzilla purchase will support our community programs and continue to provide training and artistic expression in the Industrial Arts to Providence for another decade!
