China 中国

Regional Community


With the world's largest population, a vigorous international community, and the factories that make all of your blinkies, China is an increasingly vital hub of burner activity.

On the playa, we keep our community coming together through the Annual Chinese Speakers' Tea Party, a Burning Man tradition since 2004.

In China proper, burner culture broke through to the masses with the 2006 Beijing Burning Man Film Festival, and fiery threads continue spreading.
