Daffin's Events and Special Hours
June 19th, 2016
July 16th, 2016
Through The Decades
Three events will be held:
July 16, August 20 and September 24.
This will be the fourth season that
WaterFire has been held in Sharon.
The event was introduced during the summer of 2013,
with more than 50 braziers placed in the Shenango
River. WaterFire Sharon includes a full day of arts and
music, with evening activities commencing with a
ceremonial lighting of the braziers, which remain
burning through midnight.
Last year’s events drew approximately 60,000 visitors
into downtown Sharon, according to WaterFire’s
Board Chairman Karen Winner Sed.
“In addition to the exposure to such a world class
artistic event, there has been economic impact far
beyond Sharon,” she said. “We’re hearing stories of
increased business done in shopping, restaurants and
hotels during WaterFire weekends throughout the
region for the past three years. We know that there is a
positive residual effect as well. Visitors return year
round to the area, claiming their return is due to
having such a positive experience
while here for WaterFire.”
Plans are underway for this year’s entertainment.
