Breckenridge Creative Arts will light up the town with its second Fire Arts Festival in conjunction with the International Snow Sculpture Championships. The multi-day exhibition, which runs January 28-31, will feature burning sculptures, fiery performances, pyrotechnical effects, and other spark-filled attractions on the Breckenridge Arts District campus.

Highlights include large- and small-scale pieces by nationally known fire sculptors that will be illuminated in and around the campus, including flammable metal works by Keith D’Angelo, Ryon Gesink, Alex Nolan, James Reinhardt, Alvin Sessions and Jamie Vaida.
In addition to the giant, flaming works of art, guests can also observe fiery artistic demonstrations—from glowing raku pottery firings and candle making to silversmithing, lampworking and encaustic painting. Fire performances by the Boulder-based circus collective, Fractal Tribe, and Denver’s DJ Stretch round out the 4-day event. Guests are encouraged to attend the Fire Arts Festival before or after viewing the icy marvels featured down the street at the International Snow Sculpture Championships, located in the area around the Riverwalk Center.
Presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts, all activities for the Fire Arts Festival take place in studios and outdoor spaces within the Breckenridge Arts District, located on the corner of South Ridge Street and East Washington Avenue, just off of Main Street in the heart of downtown Breckenridge.
