Event » Red Hills Fire Festival

Description:

After canceling the original date to avoid a bad storm, the Red Hills Fire Festival is reignited and ready to go!

Attend this all-ages event to experience, enjoy and learn about the special natural process of fire in southern pine forests. The festival will include wagon rides, wildlife, live prescribed fire, equipment demonstrations, fire talks with experts, kids’ activities, four of our favorite food trucks, and live music.

This will be a very special day in the Red Hills. Fire has been a natural part of these forests for many thousands of years. Prescribed fire is a safe way to apply this natural process, ensure ecosystem health, and reduce wildfire risk. Weather permitting, we plan to share the experience of prescribed fire with you. Our team of certified burners will demonstrate how they control the burn to safely restore important habitat for animals and reduce the risk of destructive wildfires.
