Kansas City

Regional Community

Kansas City straddles the border between Kansas & Missouri. We have a vibrant burner community located in the 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 an over-night camping event each month in one or the other state from May until October. See the main Missouri & Kansas pages for more information about events happening around these states. 


In Kansas City, MO, we have a monthly meet n' greet the third Thursday evening. Become a member of the Kansas City Burning Man announcement list or the Midwest Burners FaceBook group (links below) to get information about these events.






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/ 


Orphanarium is a mult-day 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/
