Our third-annual RockFire event was a huge success thanks to Iron Guild, Bow Thayer, High-Low-Jack, Antoinette Jacobson and her pyrophone (Fire Organ), Revels North, Simon de Voil, the St. Andrew’s Pipe Band, Italian Village Dance, Dave Clark, Karen Hansen & Hildur Colot, Lynn & Will Rowan, Robin Russell, Scott Forrest and Denise Ricker, along with many sculptures and artists: Chris Miller, Guiliano Cecchinelli Jr., Heather Richie, James Teuscher, and Ryan Mays. THANK YOU to all the countless volunteers, firekeepers and attendants for being such an integral part of the event, as well as those who attended and sang our praise. We can’t wait until 2015 – See you there!

We are especially grateful that Eva Sollberger of Seven Days did a story on us!

Thanks to Jeb Wallace-Brodeur and Letter10 Creative for their images used throughout the site.

Bigger! Better! Brighter!

RockFire is a unique combination of art, music and fire on a monumental scale, celebrating Central Vermont’s colorful granite heritage all set in the evocative setting of Millstone Hill’s abandoned quarries and granite industry ruins. First held in 2012 as a fundraiser for the preservation of Barre’s Historic Quarry Lands, the buzz around this event continues to build. In 2014 over 1,000 people attended. The centerpiece of the event is Firewalk, a three mile long procession lit by thousands of candles and luminaries with dozens of bonfires, all leading to variety of fire-lit art installations and 6 live performance stages. The words most often used to describe RockFire are “amazing, magical, one of a kind, powerful”.
All proceeds to benefit the Millstone Trails Association’s ongoing efforts to preserve Millstone Hill’s historic quarries.
