Regional Community

Burners are located throughout Iowa – from Sioux City to the Quad Cities – and everywhere in between! We are united by a passion for the interactive arts and camp together at many burns in the Midwest as well as in Black Rock City.

Iowa is defined by its united statewide community and always looking for more people to join with us for fun and art. Many are just starting to be involved in the greater Burning Man community so is a very exciting time to be an Iowa Burner. 

There are events such as meet-ups throughout the year and we have started doing an official regional burn, HearthsOPhyre that began (unofficially) in 2011.

Always welcomed with open arms, please contact us if visiting Iowa or in Iowa currently!  Many burners pass through and always great to meet them!

You have to be curious enough to go upstream and find the source. When you find the source, the truth is revealed. And then you can invite others to do the same. It’s what we’ve come here to do. -- Bill Kurtis
