With a spiritual and cultural history deep seeded in Phoenixville, we could not imagine a year with our Firebird burning bright. However, due to the need to keep every safe, we must plan a virtual event this year.
Fundraising will help us to make this virutal experience and celebration possible. More importantly it will also help to keep the Firebird burning bright for years to come.
For the last 16 years we have celebrated that with the burning of the Phoenix in the beginning of December. This year on Saturday December 5th, we will still celebrate our town, but individually. Yes, it is not the same, but just like we all on 4th of July go out and shoot off firework gives a feeling of unity, I believe we have created a tradition worth continuing. What does the Firebird (rising out of the ashes) represent for you? With the Corona virus still lurking, we are all slowly coming out of the ashes. We encourage community members to make a one minute video on YouTube or Vimeo, of what they would like to share, and send us the link to firebirdfestival.com, at the latest on December 12th for a virtual event on December 19th on YouTube live streaming at 8 pm.
