WaterFire Sharon

WaterFire Sharon is a nonprofit arts fund of the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio whose mission is to aid in the revitalization of the region and foster community engagement. WFS is in its sixth season hosting art installation themed events in downtown Sharon, Pa. as a premier art and music festival. Since 2013, WFS has attracted tens of thousands to each of its fifteen festivals to date. More than 50 braziers are anchored in the Shenango River in downtown Sharon during an event. Filled with cedar and pine, they are ablaze at nightfall to create a compelling display. Add to the mix, a perfect blend of pre-recorded music and live musicians performing from WFS boats to create memories that will last forever.
