Beautiful Day in The Park

We can’t thank everyone who came out to our very first fundraising event enough. We had such beautiful weather and such wonderful people! Not to mention some amazing photos… thank you so much to both Redlite Photos and The Color Crew for sharing your images with us. Make sure to go like their facebook pages (here and here) and check out some of their other work!

Of course also huge thanks goes out to a group of our favorite fans, the whole Krampuslauf family. From helping us get the park to sending kids around on stilts to busk in the dark, we really couldn’t do it without you. We can’t wait for Krampus on the 12th!!! Oh! And if you didn’t pick up a shirt and you’ve been regretting it ever since (I know I would be!) you can get one from our ‘shop’. It isn’t a very fancy set-up, and if you’d like more than one you’ll have to message us so we can combine shopping, but check it out!

Fall Fire and Arts Fest!!

Take two on our Fall Fire and Arts Fest is just around the corner! There’s no hurricane looming, its been beautifully, if unseasonably, nice out and our list of vendors and participants just keeps getting better and better. It’s going to be a really fun event, and we can’t wait to see you there!! 2-6pm, at Liberty Lands park on Sunday, November 15th. More info is up on our facebook event here. (For some reason the facebook event is saying there are tickets available… nope, this is not a ticketed event. It is, however, a fundraiser for our troupe so we’ll be collecting donations and selling cool things, but the event is free and open to any and all who want to come.)

Twisted Tail Halloween!

It’s that time again…. cool weather coming, sweaters, hot cider and turning leaves. Which means every fire dancer’s favorite holiday is around the corner! If you’re in the Philly area and looking for something to do, come on by the Twisted Tail! We’ll be spinning fire outside again this year, lighting up Headhouse Square with some fun fiery antics.

We're the top photo for's Halloween picks!

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.
