Spontaneous Combustion bonfire in Frisco

Spontaneous Combustion Bonfire & Fireworks

Event Info

What does a town of 3,000 residents do with “gently used” Christmas trees? We throw a party with a bonfire of course! Spontaneous Combustion is a community (everyone welcome!) celebration, which features a bonfire and fireworks, as well as beverage and snack sales to benefit Summit County Preschool.

Beverage and snack sales are cash only.


  • Bonfire kicks off at 6:00pm
  • Fireworks at 8:00pm

Walk, Don’t Park… But if You Must Park

We encourage you to walk and/or take the Summit Stage to get to Spontaneous Combustion. We’ve even seen burly folks bike to the this event!

But if you must park, please note that parking will not be available at the Marina, and attendees are asked to park on Main Street and side avenues and utilize the crosswalk at Main Street and Summit Boulevard/Highway 9 to get to the event safely.

How We Fuel the Bonfire

Frisco’s Spontaneous Combustion Bonfire is fueled by gently used Christmas trees- about 300 of them. From December 26, 2023 through February 10, 2024 at 4:00pm, the Town of Frisco is accepting Christmas trees at the Frisco Bay Marina dirt lot at the corner of Summit Boulevard/Highway 9 and Marina Road (map). Trees must be stripped of all lights, tinsel, garland, tree stands and decorations prior to drop off. Only real trees will be accepted, and no other materials will be accepted, including but not limited to building supplies and packaging. The tree drop-off is open 24 hours a day.
