Call to Artists & Vendors

FireFish Arts invites you to participate in FireFish 2021 – A Festival Re-Imagined!

Envisioned as “A Festival Re-Imagined,” this year the festival will be spread out over four weekends instead of two days – from August 29th through September 18th. Due to the COVID pandemic and our need to “re-imagine” the FireFish Festival in this way, there are a limited number of opportunities for artists and vendors to exhibit and sell their work. Priority will be given to Lorain and Lorain County artists and vendors.

Friday, September 3, 2021

This event has a limited number of available spots and coincides with Main Street Lorain’s Broadway Block Party held on the First Friday of the month. And is located adjacent to Rocking on the River at Black River Landing.

Saturday, September 18, 2021

The date of the James Levin FireFish Festival Finale and burning of the FireFish. It will include opportunities to tour the FireFish Arts Gallery at The Bank, along with family-friendly artistic workshops at the LCCC City Center Building, and special experiences and promotions within the businesses in downtown Lorain.

Fine Art, Installation, and Performance Art

Artists selected for exhibition in The Bank will have their art installed in the space for viewing over both weekends, as well as part of an art tour on September 11th.  The Bank is located at 383 Broadway Ave.  Installation and performance art will be placed at strategic locations throughout downtown as well as within The Bank.

Hand Crafted Products
