Pyrotopia is a new East Coast fire arts festival that will occur on October 7 and 8, 2011 at the UnSmoke Artspace in Braddock, PA near Pittsburgh. The festival will be free and organizers intend for it to become an annual event (according to the organizers, it will be the East Coast’s only annual fire arts festival). Festival organizers are raising funds for the event on Kickstarter.

See fire performances, sculptures and demos; play interactive fire games; watch fabulous fireworks; learn about fire as a scientific and artistic medium; marvel at costumes and installations using electricity, LEDs and EL-wire; and more. This event is free and open to the public.
