Imagine... Over fifty sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic cedar and pine wood in the air, flickering firelight off the bridges and silhouettes of firetenders passing by the flames as you stroll along the river and city streets, enjoy enchanting music, ethnic food tastings and performers from around the globe.
Dance until midnight to the sounds of a big band under the stars in an outdoor ballroom and participate in unique arts experiences with the entire family. This is WaterFire Sharon.
Each day-long event offers a new and different theme with interactive arts programming that can be enjoyed again and again!
