Written by Admin on . No Comments

Thank you to all that made RockFire 2015 such a success! From the hundreds of volunteers, to the amazingly talented artists and musicians, and those that ignored the weather forecast – it was the best yet, and we thank you for your participation. Our anti-rain dances were a success, and we look forward to our 5th year in 2016.

RockFire returns in 2015 with an expanded schedule of events creating a weekend-long celebration for all ages. All the favorite features of the Saturday night FireWalk including Bow Thayer, the Iron Guild, St. Andrew’s Pipe Band and the Pyrophone Fire Organ will be returning in 2015, as well as a number of new surprises. In collaboration with our new partners, The Granite Museum of Vermont, we have created a brand new night of RockFire activities which will be held at the Museum’s complex in Barre on Friday, June 26. Friday night’s event is designed to be more family friendly, and will include a one-mile long fire lit path leading to 12 stages featuring actors reenacting aspects of Barre’s colorful and dynamic history – details on all the weekend’s lineup can be found here.

We are so very excited for our fourth-annual RockFire event – bigger and brighter than ever!
Our third-annual RockFire event was a huge success thanks to all the artists, sculptors, musicians, volunteers and spectators – and Mother Nature who gave us a perfectly beautiful day to celebrate. THANK YOU to all who made it possible! 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.

For the most up-to-date schedule, please check back often. Become a fan of our Facebook page, or contact Pierre with interest in volunteering.

What is RockFire?

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, and powerful.”


All proceeds to benefit the Barre Granite Museum, and ongoing efforts to preserve Millstone Hill’s historic quarries.
