Party Liberation Foundation fire performers.

PLF is a collective of multi-talented artists, performers, and community builders based in Richmond, VA and along the central east coast. For nearly a decade, PLF has been a staple in local music and performance arts spaces. Their mission of nurturing community growth is pursued by hosting events and workshops, as well as offering grant programs aimed at fueling numerous art projects, large scale installations, and other collaborative & creative endeavors.

Their events are treasured by many, such as the well-known PyroCircus RVA First Friday street shows that are free to the public outside of Gallery5, and Decemberween, a long-standing New Years tradition that takes place at Diversity Richmond and is admired as the most immersive NYE event in the city. You can also usually find them hosting theme camps at nearby regional Burning Man events, like Ignite in Stewart Va.

For this special burner-inspired evening at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, PLF will be showcasing some of their many artists and skills with daring fire performances, energetic DJ sets, a booming sound system, impressive propane flame effects, mind-blowing visual projection art, and everything that they’ve come to be known for.
