Event Details


After much deliberation WaterFire has decided to cancel our 2021FireBall fundraiser at the WaterFire Arts Center. We are regrouping and planning for a bigger and better return in 2022. Like many of our partnering organizations and companies, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are still being felt internally and with a strain of resources and personnel, we feel this is the best decision at this time. Thank you to our committee members and our supporters who purchased tickets to this event.

OH SNAP! It’s the 6th Annual FireBall!

The 6th Annual FireBall will take place on Friday, October 29 at the WaterFire Arts Center from 8:00 PM – 1:00 AM. In celebration of WaterFire’s 25th anniversary, the theme will be “90’s”, to honor the decade in which the first braziers were lit.


The 2021 FireBall Headliners will be Felix Brown Band

Felix Brown Band

Felix Brown Band is “Groove For Your Soul!” Felix Brown Band has established themselves as one of the premier bands in the Northeast. No matter where the club, they always draw a crowd and entertain with their special mix of high energy music and fun interactive shows.

The re-imagined annual fundraiser will be a 90’s themed dance party featuring music by local DJ’s like DJ Nook, food trucks like SunnySide on the Street and Poppin Minis Donuts, drinks by Troop, plus a silent auction, vintage 90s arcade games, digital art projections, live mural painting and other live art creation will be provided by the newly inaugurated 2021 WaterFire Accelerate artists. A new gallery experience “Welcome to the Anti- Robot Club” by Spocka Summa will be featured in the Visitor Center Gallery during FireBall.

$40 ticket holders gain entrance to the event. $50 ticket holders will receive an exclusive 2021 FireBall Tee-Shirt designed by Bad Taste, (limited to 100 guests). At-the-door entry tickets will be $50.

We are requiring that all guests be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before entering the WaterFire Arts Center and are able to show proof at the door.

The evening’s MCs are Gibran Borbon and Ashley Erling. Doors open at 8 pm. Dress in your favorite 90’s gear and join us for a party!

We’re packing the WaterFire Arts Center with DJs, digital art projections, murals, a special art installation by Spocka from Public, arcade games and so much more!
