Welcome

Reading Fire + Ice Fest, the flagship winter festival of Berks County, will return to downtown Reading for its fourth year in 2018! Produced and organized by the Reading Downtown Improvement District, the festival will take place January 12-13, kicking off on Friday, January 12 in the 500 block of Penn Street at 5:30 p.m.

Reading Fire + Ice Fest will feature a variety of both indoor and outdoor activities, including a chili cook-off, Snowfall Ball, professional ice-carving competitions, fire performances, live music, pancake breakfast presented by Genesius Theatre, and concession stands. All outdoor activities will again be free, and the chili cook-off, Snowfall Ball, and pancake breakfast will have nominal entry fees.

Reading Fire + Ice Fest is supported in large part by a generous grant from the Hawley and Myrtle Quier Fund of the Berks County Community Foundation.

2018 snowfall ball featuring
go go GAdjet

Blending the rhythms of dance music with familiar melodies from the past and present, Go Go Gadjet straddles the line between band and DJ like few others.  Their innovative combination of traditional instruments with modern synths and controllers has allowed them to craft a sound and presentation that is uniquely their own.  A decade on the road has molded this PA based group into an entertainment machine.  They are trendsetters in their industry and their show is the definition of “Epic.”

Continually reinventing their stage design, Go Go Gadjet’s visual display rivals that of a nationally touring act.  The band believes that imagery and music go hand in hand.  With careful thought and planning, Go Go Gadjet works to create captivating visuals that complement and enhance the live experience.  Their aim is to provide audiences with an audio/visual escape.
