ROCKFIRE 2021: RAIN OR SHINE

Friday June 25th, all ages welcome:

Limited food offerings available. We welcome you to bring a picnic!

7-9pm Music – Hilde Ojibway

8pm–midnight. The Granite Heritage FireWalk
Recommended ages 7+. Only service dogs allowed at event.
Timed groups of people will depart approximately every half hour for the Heritage Walk – first come, first served. Walking shoes recommended! The Heritage Walk follows a completely different pathway and experience than Saturday’s FireWalk and is designed to be accessible to every level of mobility, with half of the pathway being wheel chair accessible. Guests can choose to do the entire 2 mile walk, estimated to take 1.75 hours, or just half of the walk, which is estimated to take about 1 hour. The Heritage walk leads you through the storytelling of Barre’s amazing and colorful granite story from its original Abenaki origins to today’s revival. Meet William Barclay, E L Smith, Maria Corti, Carlo Abate and a host of colorful characters as they relate their powerful personal stories. All ages will be welcomed, although we do not recommend bringing children under 7 years old. 

The first walk will start at 8pm, for those preferring not to walk in the dark. The first candle lit walk will begin at 9:15pm, with groups departing every 15 minutes after that.

$10 per person, or $25 for a family (2 adults & 2 children. Additional children $5 each)
