Ironfest 2012 – Book Fayre

Ironfest introduces new attraction for 2012 – The Inaugural Ironfest Book Fayre


Ironfest is proud to announce the addition of a new attraction for 2012: ‘The Inaugural Ironfest Book Fayre’, organised by local bookseller Paul Phillips, whose bookshop, A Readers Heaven, is located in the East End Main Street, Lithgow. Numerous booksellers will band together to provide visitors a vast range and selection of literary delights.

The Book Fair should prove to be a popular addition to the hugely successful Ironfest weekend. Books of all fiction genres and a massive range of non-fiction works will be available and the organisers are expecting the total of books to number in the thousands.

Ironfest attracts thousands of visitors every year to the Lithgow region and organisers of the Book Fair believe that the inclusion of this new attraction will have a two-fold effect: to bring more visitors to Ironfest and the Lithgow region and, secondly, to provide a link between readers and local booksellers.

Ironfest has been recognized as an event of State significance & attracts people from all over Australia, and increasingly, the world. This year the festival will be held over two days at the Lithgow Showground over the weekend of April 21 & 22, 2012.

The event is truly unique; also comprising of major large-scale historical events, including an international jousting event and a colonial era battle re-enactment, as well as art exhibitions, stalls, live musical acts, a farmers market, street performance, technological displays, art making workshops, blacksmithing demonstrations and competitions, wood-chopping events, busking competitions, automotive displays, machinery exhibitions and lots more.

Ironfest is supported by Destinations NSW, Delta Electricity & Lithgow City Council, plus a host of smaller supporters.
