The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico is a festival unlike any other in the world. In celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework-makers, pyrotechnic artisans show off their technical virtuosity, while up-­and-comers create their own rowdy, lo­fi combustibles.

This is a celebration that anchors a way of life built around a generations-old, homegrown business of making fireworks by hand. For the people of Tultepec, the National Pyrotechnic Festival is explosive celebration, unrestrained delight and real peril. Plunging headlong into the fire, Brimstone & Glory honors the spirit of Tultepec’s community and celebrates celebration itself.
