The Fire Festival is an annual professional wrestling round-robin tournament held by Pro Wrestling ZERO1 to determine the top wrestler in the promotion, typically contested in late July/early August. In addition to ZERO1 members, it has frequently included outside stars, including 2003 winner Satoshi Kojima, Kensuke Sasaki and TAKA Michinoku.
Since 2002, it has featured two blocks, each with five participants, with the two block winners facing off in the final to determine the overall champion. The 2001 Fire Festival only featured four in each block, but held the same principle. The winner of the tournament is presented with the Fire Sword, which they carry for the following year until the next Festival.
