Slag Association to hold annual slag festival at Calgary’s Bellwoods
Slag is the most common material in industrial slag, the waste produced when metal and other metals are processed for the production of products like metal products and metals alloyed with lead.
In the last few years, the Alberta Association of Metalworkers has held a slag expo every fall to bring people together to celebrate metal waste.
The group is also hosting an annual slagshow at Bellwoods, in which slag collectors and the public gather for a weekend of slag and entertainment.
“It’s a fun, creative event and the community really comes together to do a fun celebration of the metal industry,” said Mike Sturgis, president of the association.
“This is really about bringing together all the different types of metalworkers to bring the industry together, and to bring together all types of people, so they can have fun together and enjoy the show.”
The slagsfest has been held annually since 1993, but this year the organizers decided to take a leap.
“We felt that we needed to do something new,” Sturgas said.
“The first event we did last year was pretty big.
For years, there have been slags shows at the Bellwoods slag yard, but they have always been at the tail end of summer. “
Our goal was to do an event that’s not just about the industry, it’s also about people coming together and bringing a little bit of their personality to the event.”
For years, there have been slags shows at the Bellwoods slag yard, but they have always been at the tail end of summer.
This year’s event will be held on the second weekend of July.
The show is sponsored by the metalworkers’ association and the Bellwood Slag Project.
The annual slogshow will feature food trucks and bands, including a metal-infused tribute to the band The Smurfs.
The event will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.t. at the Slagworks on Bellwoods Drive.
