Hurricane Joaquin headed our way, Rescheduled Fall Fire & Arts Fest

Sadly, we regret to inform everyone that we have decided to postpone our first annual Fall Fire & Arts Fest for several reasons, including 3+ wet days leading up to and including the day of, rapidly dropping temperatures, high winds predicted and of course, a looming Category 4 hurricane threatening the Mid-Atlantic coast.

Safety is our biggest concern right now, and we don’t want to risk putting on a fire-centric performance event with the potential for rain and high winds. Beyond that, even if the evening hours stay mostly rain-free the ground will likely still be very wet in the park, which is a huge deterrent for our vendors and the comfort of our audience.

Thank you to all the friends, family, vendors, performers and community supporters that had planned to make it out. The good news is that we have already scheduled our rain-date! Sunday, November 15th, from 2-6pm, at the ever flexible and understanding Liberty Lands Park. The weather might be chillier but we won’t have to fight gale force winds, and it’ll be even better timing to pick up some holiday presents from our vendors!

Thank you all for your patience and understanding, and we hope to see you at our rescheduled event!

Join us for the first annual Fall Fire & Arts Fest Performance Art Spectacular!

Hosted by Philly’s favorite fire group LUX ARATI as we end the summer festival season and transition into cooler weather, changing leaves, crisp air and the PERFECT weather for spinning fire outside!

Lux Arati will be performing their latest & greatest performance piece, “Alchemy”, that was featured at this years PEX Summer Festival as their 5th performance as part of the Russian Roulette Variety Show along with a collection of solos, duets, and smaller group numbers that are part of the LUXIE repertoire. In addition, the Luxies have invited some of their favorite local performers to put on a never–before seen collection of some of the most diverse and talented performance artists in the city of brotherly love and beyond.

This unique showcase will be immediately after the FALL ART MARKET, a chance to browse handcrafted items and so much more from local artist/business vendors.




Welcome Spring!


, , , , , ,

It was a rough winter here on the East Coast, but on this beautiful warm day it seems that Spring has finally arrived for good. We’ve been busy bees at our Lux Arati headquarters, scheming and dreaming and working away at new and exciting things for the upcoming summer. New tricks to learn, new props to play with and always more costumes to make! We’re all really excited about what we’ve got in store for the months ahead. Keep an eye on this space and our facebook page for some sneak peaks and updates on where we’ll be performing next.

While I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this before, I figure can’t hurt to share again. For all those out there with nice toasty wicks, here’s a quick way to refresh your props so you’re ready to go this summer. Enjoy, and burn bright!

2014 Krampuslauf


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Every year Philadelphia Krampuslauf gets bigger and better! This year was no exception. There’s something about the crowd, the collaboration, the excitement…. everyone is really there to have a great time. The costumes are consistently amazing. I wish that we could march with the parade, but we’re usually setting up for the show. We had our full group this year, which was a ton of fun. Lots of fur (we scrabbled around at local thrift stores to find the real stuff… you want to singe, not melt!) and home made horns- we even got to use the AMAZING headdresses that Xtina made a few years ago. (They’re also going to be displayed at the Krampuslauf exhibit at iMPeRFeCT Gallery in January — “UNVERIFIED PERSONAL GNOSIS: KRAMPUSLAUF PHILADELPHIA, PARADE OF SPIRITS”)

Enough rambling. Photos!!! These photos are all copyright their respective photographers, who we thank profusely for allowing us to share here.
