BiG FIRE was founded by Garrett Mendez, Blake Harrison and Matthew Marcy in 2015. It started off as a one day event, at a family campsite in Ojai, CA with 3 renegade stages, artwork taken from living rooms and making sure the neighbors didn't narc.
From the very beginning, the principals of BiG FIRE have been: Leave no trace, Pack in pack out, Radical self reliance, B.Y.O.Everything and coming together under the stars to laugh at the absurdity of life.
BiG FIRE, now in its 4th consecutive year, is a 3 day - 2 night festival, with 3 Comedy Stages and 1 Music Stage, workshops and art installations to explore and the wildest entertainment spanning from sunset to sunrise.
One big comedy show.
One big campsite.
One big community.
One big canvas.
