Full Moon Jams: Fire Dancing with the Moon at Chicago’s Lakefront

The Full Moon Fire Jam – where “fire spinners” perform for free for the masses — started in Chicago in 2004, with just a few friends at a park on Lake Michigan. Now the jam attracts as many as a thousand spectators when the moon is full. (Sept. 29)

The Full Moon Jams happen every full moon during the summer months in Chicago, from March or April to October or November, weather permitting. Started in 2004 by a group of friends celebrating a birthday, the jams have grown in size to accommodate the increasing amount of drummers, fire spinners, families, and random passer-by’s that come to enjoy the night.
