Event Details & Schedule

Written by Admin on . No Comments

RockFire returns for our seventh year with an expanded schedule of events creating a weekend-long celebration at Millstone Hill in Websterville, Vermont. All of your favorites are back, including the Iron Guild, Emily Nyman, Art Zorn and the Pyrophone Fire Organ.

Friday night’s Heritage walk will be held at Millstone Hill. This walk is more family-friendly, an all abilities event with half of the pathway being wheel chair accessible. There will also be live music, and food.

Saturday’s big night includes concert, a new performance from The Iron Guild – a molten pour in the quarry, and the signature RockFire walk which is a different experience from Friday’s walk.

ROCKFIRE 2018:

Friday June 29th, all ages welcome:

Timed groups of people will depart approximately every half hour for the Heritage Walk – first come, first served.
