Midwest Fire Fest 2022 - July 23 and 24

WESTSIDE PARK   CAMBRIDGE, WI

Saturday, July 23: 10am-10pm
Sunday, July 24: 10am-4pm

Midwest Fire Fest is a demonstration heavy celebration of all things created with fire, heat, and smoke including but not limited to clay, metal arts, welding, forging, hot glass, food, and performance.

We have created an event unlike any other in the Midwest. Part art fair, part makers fair, part music festival. Fire art in every form imaginable, igniting a rich atmosphere of hands-on experiences, creativity and learning that attracts engaged patrons from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, & Iowa.

Other attractions for the weekend include: on-site firing and reveal of a 7 foot clay sculpture, fire dancers, and smoking hot music all weekend!
