An eleven heavenly hot years Birthday Blowout Bash. A celebration so hot is pops!

***We lock our doors from 4-6p on Third Friday to prep for the event***

  • 6p  See artists interpret and create different works of art from molten glass with a celebratory twist.
  • 7:15p  Cheer the annual Pumpkin Death Match. Artists square off and rumble. You pick which glass pumpkin lives and which gets tanked.
  • 8p  Lush and sultry Sarah Jane and the Blue Notes band plays jazz so hot it’s ‘cool man cool’.
  • 8:15p  Those Fire Techs will “Thriller” you with their amazing performance.
  • 8:30p  See what happens when popcorn meets up with a hot blown bowl.
  • 9p  Be amazed (and you could win – free raffle ticket w each drink purchase) the created-before-your-very-eyes Great Pumpkin. It takes a team of artists to blow, hoist one this ginormous gourd to the annealer.

Thirsty? Some like it hot. Some like it cold. You pick. Apple Jack, Apple Rum Punch, Autumn Cinnamon Cider (spiked — or not). Buy a beverage, get a free raffle ticket to win the Great Pumpkin.
