Ember Stomp 2023

Save the Date: Saturday, May 20

Join us for Marin’s second annual wildfire prevention festival, Ember Stomp at the Marin Civic Center Fairgrounds from 11AM-5PM.

We are all in this together! Ember Stomp invites residents to learn their role in being part of a fire-adapted community and how we can all prepare for wildfire. This year offers a bigger space with new music, entertainment, exhibits, vendors and a live burn demonstration. This FREE event is fun for the whole family.

Join the fun and be part of the solution – lowering Marin’s risk of wildfire together!

This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of following major donors: The County of Marin, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Inc, Fortress Fire Retardant Systems, Fire Aside, and Vulcan Vents.
