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. 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.
