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 close to 2,000 people are expected to attend. 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.
