LOCATION

To celebrate Union Square’s sizzling food landscape, we bring you: the IGNITE Festival! Expect an evening of international eats, fire throwers, roving entertainment, and a raucous celebration of global culture.

In addition to many local food vendors, there will be interactive light installations, numerous illuminated performers and to top it all off, FIRE! Local eateries throughout the Square will be featuring Ignite themed specials.

Beyond the global grazing opportunities, a Korean Drumming performance will kick things off to get the crowd moving with melodic rhythms of the East. The main event in Fire Square will feature performances such as Haitian dance to fire performers; the night will close out with the fabulous Ignite Dance Party led by A Trike Called Funk! Throughout the evening, there will be light projections, installations, and many other performers. And of course, there will be numerous activities and our infamous Tiger Head
