Regional Community

The Minnesota Regional Contacts primarily serve Minnesota, but also act as points of contact for many burners in Western Wisconsin and the Eastern Dakotas. Minnesota has a diverse and ever expanding Burning Man community that has seen a great deal of growth in recent years. We enthusiastically reach out to other groups in the communities we serve, tapping into the incredible arts community around the Twin Cities area and across the state.

Outside of Minnesota few people realize just how rich and vital our arts community is. With a long-standing Art Car Parade, dozens of festivals and arts related events, as well as being the home to several highly regarded cultural institutions such as the Guthrie Theater and Walker Art Center, Minnesota shows its love for the arts with vigorous support. We believe that Larry Harvey’s February 2000 presentation at the Walker, “La Vie Boheme: A History of Burning Man”, should be required reading for any member of the Burning Man community that has ever been asked to explain Burning Man.
