The Artist Market
LionFire Music Festival is a celebration of not just music, but also fire & art. Watch as visiting artists create visually stunning works come to life throughout the entire event weekend. Visit their shops to shop their handmade wares created from traditional mediums.
The artist market can be found near the campground stage, allowing you to enjoy some soft, acoustic tunes while shopping around and meeting the talented vendors.
