Fire Arts Festival 2006

Ball of Fire

The 6th annual Fire Arts Festival takes place next week at The Crucible in Oakland. The festival runs from Wednesday, July 12th through Saturday, July 15th and features an amazing line-up of artists and performers. “The Burning Man Desert Art Preview” is included as part of the festival and takes place on Wednesday, July 12th.

Towering pillars of flame, cracking bolts of electricity, bodies dancing through fire – experience a four-day celebration of creation through fire & light. Come during the day to learn new skills at special Crucible workshops and classes. Return at night as the Fire Arts Arena lights up with fire performance, music, and the works of innovative fire sculptors.
