Play Locally-Fire Spinning Events Throughout Chicago

Going through Full Moon Fire Jam withdrawal?    October is the ideal month to still see amazing displays of fire spinning, juggling, hooping and more.   Liz and the Full Moon Jam Organizers put out this great list.   So check it out.   If you missed ChiIL Mama's photo filled coverage of the final jam, check it out here.

Here's one of our Android HD videos from the last jam.

The Full Moon Jam is on hiatus till spring, but here is a list of fire performances that will be happening all around the City, for the rest of October.   Going to any of these performance is a great way to support the fire artists in our community, but also gives you the ability to see choreographed pieces, elaborate costuming and beautiful stage design that have been created specifically for the performance that you are going to watch.  The experience is very different then going to the jam and watching fire dancers dance to the beat of a drum.
