The Flow Arts Institute hosts seven annual festivals around the United States.

What makes our festivals different from the others? As the largest network of connected flow festivals in the country, we compound the innovations and excellence of each event by sharing between them. Having put on over 50 festivals, we have plenty of experience in getting it right. From a diversity of high-level teachers and workshop content down to the details of an industry-leading Fire Safety Protocol, art grants, and top-quality performance ‘Flowcases,’ we go the extra distance to make your festival experience awesome. We regularly offer the one-of-a-kind opportunity to Firewalk at our festivals for no extra cost. Come to any of our events and experience it for yourself: we are passionate about making the best possible flow festival!

Join us and hundreds of other like-minded artists at our next event!

Kinetic Fire

Kinetic Fire is a 4 day fire performer’s paradise held at our new venue Stable Studios, in Spencer, Indiana. The event is designed to provide a fun and open-share communal environment in which object manipulators and fire artists from all over the Midwest and the world can learn, teach, and advance together in the fire and flow arts. Kinetic Fire focuses on an amazing workshop program, high energy performances, and designated spin time with quality music. Fire enthusiasts, jugglers, and prop manipulators of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in this exciting opportunity for growth and development with other motivated members of the fire and flow arts family at one of the largest annual gatherings for fire dancers in the United States. Come and learn, play, laugh, and grow with us, at Kinetic Fire!
