Controlled Burn’s Fire Fest 2018

For ten years, Controlled Burn has proudly hosted their signature event, COMPRESSION! – a Festival of Art and Fire. The event started small, but it grew each year as more people wanted to be part of the fun. Eventually, the event outgrew Controlled Burn’s ability to host it. The hours of volunteerism and expenses were going to put an end to the event. The City of Reno Special Events crew did not want Compression to end. They worked their magic and found us a new home. 

This year we are teaming up with the Reno Art Fest and the Mural Marathon to be part of one amazing 3 day event. Compression will be renamed Controlled Burn’s Fire Fest. The event will be held from June 29th to July 1st, with the Fire Fest on Saturday, June 30th. The event will be held on Virginia Street, between 4th and 6th Streets. The Fire Fest will be held at the Playa Park on Virginia, across from Circus Circus.
