Join regional artists and organizers in downtown Lorain, OH as they launch FireFish Arts Festival on September 26, 2015.
Situated on the shores of the Black River and Great Lake Erie, downtown Lorain is characterized by unique pre-war storefronts, empty alleys, and natural beauty. FireFish will activate under-used and alternative spaces with a variety of art forms. FireFish will celebrate Lorain's history and potential with an evening of local collaboration, inviting a turnaround after decades of economic decline.
