✨ You are cordially invited to join us in Richmond, Virginia for PLF's DECEMBERWEEN 2023: NYE! ✨
Decemberween 2023 is officially ON and will be loaded with all of the music, dancing, creativity, costumes, camaraderie, and community fun that you’ve come to expect, with even more new surprises in store. Come make some memories with us as we ring in the New Year.
We will once again transform Diversity Richmond's huge 15,000 square foot event space AND outdoor area into multiple immersive environments for fire performances, live music, 3 stages with bands & DJs, interactive art installations, circus arts, performances arts, outdoor pyro-sculptures, mutant vehicle showcases, 3 Libation Stations, food trucks, vendors, and more!
We are excited to present to you an entire roster of fire spinners, aerialists, dancers, and other performance artists throughout the evening, including returning acts, new debuts, solo artists, and troupe routines.
- If you are an experienced fire performer who wishes to join in the fire circle during the event, there will be a mandatory safety meeting at 9:30 PM sharp by the Fuel Depot, which will be behind the Fire Stage. Please follow the signs near the stage to find the performer holding area.
- All interested fire spinners must attend the meeting in order to spin fire during the open-spin segments of the night, which will be announced along with the official schedule and will be posted in the performer holding area.
- There will be mandatory waivers and wristbands at the safety meeting, so please be on time and present if you plan to light up!
- We will have an area for you to store your props during the event. We have all the fuel dump supplies covered, but we are accepting fuel donations if anyone would like to bring a can!
