Kansas City

Regional Community

We have a vibrant burner community located in Kansas City, as well as spread throughout both Kansas and Missouri! We've been getting together and organizing events since 2003. At this point, you can attend a burn a month in Kansas or Missouri from May until October.

Midwest Burners is our Burning Man inspired social and recreational assocation based in the Kansas City area. The association organizes the events InterFuse, Hullabalu, and Burnin Down the River all in Missouri within 2-4 hours drive from Kansas City. InterFuse is an official regional burn held in the Spring; Burnin Down The River is an all ages float trip in July; and HullabalU is the all ages Fall after-burn event where we share tales of Burning Man or other burns from the season. http://www.midwestburners.com/ 

The Wichita Burners are an association of burners in Wichita Kansas. They organize the multi-day camping event, Resonance, every Fall. http://wichitaburners.org/ 

Orphanarium is an event organized by burners in August in Missouri for adults not attending Burning Man.  



The Gateway Burn is an all ages burn held in June in Missouri  and organized by the St. Louis-based Gateway Burners organization. http://gatewayburners.org/
