Constellation is hosted by FirePony Creative Society, (the trade name for Playa del Fuego, Inc), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Maryland.

The event is managed by a volunteer team that includes event producers, sphere leads, and department leads who collaborate to ensure that all the big pieces are in place. This amazing team welcomes YOU to join in the fun. Constellation is a participatory event, and we encourage you to explore ways to engage – as a volunteer, as an artist, as a theme camp lead. Our city runs on our collective energy!
