Firebird Festival, know for the burning of the Phoneix in Downtown Phoenixville, December10th, 2011
The Firebird Festival is Coming!!
The eighth annual Firebird Festival is going to be December 10th from 3-10pm. This is a great event, and one with a great deal of meaning for Phoenixville. Phoenixville has a rich history as steel town, a place where its residents either worked for the Steel plant, or in some fashion supported it. There was a time that you could find things manufactured in Phoenixville all over the world. In the early 80's that era came to an end with the closing of Phoenix Iron & Steel. The town was hit hard by its closing; Phoenixville along with its residents fell on hard times and remained there for a close to 20 years.
Through a combined effort of local government, residents, and key investors Phoenixville has literally pulled itself from the ashes of the steel plant if you will. This town has grown so much over the last 10 years, and has truly become one of the prized gems of Chester County. We have become a destination, a place to gather, and place to celebrate, and of many of us.... A place to live. There is a since of pride to be able to say “I live in Phoenixville”.
Saturday the 10th, from 3-10pm there will be a celebration. One separate from all of our holidays and personal beliefs. It’s an event that I feel ignites a huge since of pride for local residence. It’s a great reason to come downtown and show your pride, and to invite your friends and family to WOW them with an event unlike any other event. I don't know any town that yearly constructs a massive Phoenix with such detail to be considered art, and brings its community together to ignite our pride, and move us into the next year with a since of urgency and excitement to see that new things will come to our town of Phoenixville.
I hope you can make it to this event, and I ask that you tell as many people as possible about this event. This is a place for all to gather, celebrate, and enjoy!
