Lorain Firefish Festival: Experience Lorain’s Broadway Avenue as it ignites with HOT arts and fire performances orchestrated in unexpected places! Re-imagine downtown Lorain during this free arts festival as it becomes a stage for a scorching array of art, dance, music, and FIRE!

Opera on a fire truck, art installations lighting up storefronts, fire dancing on rooftops, ballet in an alley, or cabaret in an abandoned building – anything is possible at FireFish!

Local food and beverage vendors, regional artists and artisans, and interactive activities round out the festivities. The pulse of live music, dance, and a larger than life “FireFish” leads to the dusk performance, where drums,  fire dancers and fire jugglers light the way to a blaze of art and performances-  sizzling against the stunning backdrop of a  historic cityscape and the Black River Landing waterfront.
