The Anthracite Heritage Museum’s 2024 Arts on Fire Festival

The Anthracite Heritage Museum is pleased to announce the 13th Arts on Fire festival at the historic Scranton Iron Furnaces.  Arts on Fire, the museum’s annual festival will feature an iron pour, scratch blocks, music, food, crafts, and educational tents from our partners. The event is free and will run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Scranton Iron Furnaces just off downtown Scranton. 

Visit or @AnthraciteHeritageMuseum on Facebook.  Metal artist Brian Glaze will run the cupola furnace and start pouring molten iron in the afternoon.  Come by and etch your own design in one of our special scratch blocks.  The Scranton crew will cast each design in molten iron, and you will have a special commemorative of the event.  We will also host a wide array of food trucks and arts vendors throughout the event.   

Site administrator, Bode Morin said, “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate the significant industrial history that came out of Northeast Pennsylvania and impacted the world. Our event will showcase the intersection of Art and Industry and will allow visitors an immersive, educational, and thrilling experience for all ages.”
