FIREQUEST: Scavenger Hunt and Hothouse Fundraiser
Saturday, June 15, 3 to 9 p.m.

Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center invites you to FIREQUEST, our annual scavenger hunt and fundraiser! Compete for semi-fabulous prize packages by finding hot, sparky, or fiery items, and visiting public artworks and local businesses along the way.

If scavenging isn't your thing, join us from 6:30 to 9 p.m. for a Hothouse-style party, turned up a few degrees! We'll celebrate the scavenger hunt winners and you'll be able support CAFAC's work while enjoying fire arts demonstrations, a gallery show, and a pop-up art market. You'll be treated to entertainment by Insphyre Performance and a Fire in Ice metal pour with Pedal to the Metal Foundry. Featured food from our hot & smoky neighbors Smoke in the Pit and Funky Grits is included with your ticket.

Open (Hot)House

Join us for fiery fun! Open (Hot)House is an opportunity for our students and artists show off their work in an informal, celebratory event, open to the entire community. Watch fire arts in action as our instructors demonstrate their crafts. Participate in various hands-on activities and check out new work in our gallery. There's something for everyone at the Open (Hot)House and it's a great way to see what we've been up to at CAFAC. Snacks and refreshments too! Open (Hot)House is held every March and September.

Our next Open (Hot)House is Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details!

Held every December, for all your holiday gift shopping! Past events have featured glassware, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, clothing, 3d printed puzzles, paintings and much more. The RedHot Art Market is also an important fundraiser for CAFAC, with 30% of the proceeds going towards our scholarship fund!
