Cochise College Pit Fire Festival


Bring the whole family!

The public is invited to the annual Cochise College Pit Fire Festival- produced by the Douglas campus Art Department. Discover a myriad of ceramics, sounds, tastes, and visual and performing artists starting at 5:00 p.m. on the Douglas Campus.

There will be bands, performances, art displays and vendors displaying their wares.

A pit fire is an ancient method of “baking” clay that has been placed in a hole or pit dug into the ground with a wood fire burning above, resulting in pieces covered in swirls of colors and patterns. Cochise College celebrates this technique with a festival to celebrate the arts. All proceeds support the Cochise College art department and the clubs who participate as vendors. The event is free to attend, but you can purchase a hand-crafted ceramic bowl for $10 to fill with gourmet soup, freshly made by the college’s culinary arts club. 1000 ceramic bowls were each hand-made and uniquely crafted by an art student.

Please be aware, many vendors accept only cash and there aren’t any ATMs on site.
