Full Moon Jams are a community event: Fire Spinners from Chicago and
beyond gather together, with the passion filled music from local
drummers to share with you their combined passions. The result: an
evening of beautiful flames, dances, music and laughter.
The jams always start around the time of the sunset. and always end by
10:15pm. Everyone must be in their cars and out of the park by 11:00pm.
Jam happen rain or shine... but please know that these events, despite
their size, are informal in many ways. No one fire spinner or drummer
is required to come and share gifts at the jam. Thus.. sometimes
there are less drummers and sometimes their are less fire spinners.
This is just how it is.
If you are a fire spinner and are not on the Chicago Fire Tribe email
group ... please email email@example.com and introduce
yourself, so we can add you to the list of fellow fire friends here in
The Jam is open to everyone and anyone. It is a free event and will
continue to be. This event is NOT organized by the City of Chicago..
it is put together by a community of fire loving friends.
Important things to know about the Jam
... and please help everyone know these important things. -The Jams
are a family event... please no alcohol
-The Jams have worked hard to develop a great working and
understanding relationship with Local Area Police... please be kind to

-We encourage everyone to take pictures at the Jams, but we have found
that flash photography is disruptive to the event and to our flow.
