GLOW: A Festival of Fire & Light

Sponsored by Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH)

Hosted by the MAH, GLOW takes place along Cooper Street, throughout Abbott Square, in the Secret Garden, and on the ground floor of the MAH building.

GLOW is an annual festival featuring the very best fire and digital artists in Santa Cruz County. It's like a little bit of Burning Man came to Downtown Santa Cruz. It’s a burst of creativity that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Explore Cooper Street as it fills with fire dancing and art. Get up close to flaming cannonades, sculptures and live DJs in Abbott Square. Get hands-on in the electrified Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH) with interactive digital art, projections, and LED sculptures!
