What is Convention? 

Convention (aka. Flow Up, Glow Up) is a 2-day event hosted by The Barefoot Fireflies that invites flow artists, speakers, circus vendors, and performers from across the country to campus to share their expertise with the Vassar/Poughkeepsie community.

Flow Up, Glow Up occurs on a Saturday and Sunday in late April and includes circus workshops for all skill levels, an evening performance, a raffle of circus equipment, and vendors!
