The Arts and Entertainment Committee would like to thank the many performers and volunteers who makes this event possible, as well as the Phoenixville Borough Fire and Police departments for making sure that the event runs safely and smoothly. Special thanks to our sponsors: Great American Pub, Bistro on Bridge, Green Mountain Energy , Frees Insurance, the great music band Bent Benjamins, and our many donors, who have all supported this festival with generous donations.
The Firebird Festival is an annual celebration of the borough's namesake - the Phoenix. Our mission is to foster a collaboration of local artistic and creative talent, and to enhance the cultural life of Phoenixville. These goals are achieved through the festival itself, and through the use of funds generated by the event to support arts projects within the Borough, such as murals and sculpture, as well as entertainments staged for the benefit of the public.
One invaluable by-product of the Firebird Festival is the personal connections made between all those who participate in this event - the organizers, the builders, the volunteers, the performers, the attendees, the businesses, as well as the Police and Fire Departments, and borough administrators. There are few other Phoenixville events that stimulate such creative cross-pollination between so many diverse groups of people.
