We’re throwing a thing! It’s going to be great and everyone should come!!!
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.
And let the madness begin! We’ve got quite the summer coming up, and what way to kick it off than a week full of events? Come catch some of the ladies from Lux Arati at two fun (and free!) upcoming gigs:

I’m a little late in posting this, but we were waiting on our fire permit and it just came through this morning…. We’re super psyched to be part of another event for the Rail Park, this time at Union Transfer! Grid Philly has a nice write-up about the event here, and you can buy tickets to the event on the Rail Park’s page here.
We’ll be doing some inside dancing for the cocktail party, then spinning fire outside. Fingers crossed that the beautiful weather from today keeps up!
Its Fringe Fest time in Philadelphia! We’re excited to be participating this year at a fundraiser/awareness event for the new Reading Viaduct Rail Park. We’ll be spinning fire around 9:00pm as part of the after party. It sounds like it is going to be a pretty fun event. Come on by!! The whole after-party will be 7:30-11pm. Tickets can be bought here, $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
The wonderful Fahrenheit Flow Festival is this weekend. Fahrenheit is a three day camping event where fire performers and flow artists of all types and skill levels come from near and far to share and celebrate their passion for this captivating art form. Many of the Luxie Ladies are involved with the festival, from helping organize to teaching workshops. I’m sure it’ll be a great time for all who are attending!
BUT… for those of you not out camping for the weekend and hanging around Philly, the Luxies who are still in town will be performing at Lucky 13’s yearly block party!
The event itself should be fun- and it’s free! So come on down to South Philly and hang out with some fun people, drink some beer, eat some food and catch some fire spinning! And cross your fingers that the rain holds off!
