North Bay

Regional Community

Four Regional Contacts serve the areas along the California Coast—Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Lake, Mendocino and Humboldt Counties. We're here to listen to Burners, prospective Burners, and all of the crafty creative cit'zens of Nor Cal interested in creating a community of makers and doers. We'll help them any way we can. Within the limits of the ten principles, of course!

We host a monthly meeting open to all who like Burning Man, with the activity, date and location changing often. In the past we have met at the roller skate rink for skate night, poolside for a afternoon BarBQ, on the couch for slide shows and movies, around the camp fire for stories from long time burners, and numerous "Newbie Orientation" gatherings helping brand new burners feel more prepared.

We are always looking for new people and places to introduce to our community, and with our large area we probably have missed something fantastic that should be shared with everyone. If you come across such a thing, please let us know! We can rally the troops, orginize an event and all experience it together. Also we can help keep your art or event within the Ten Principles for those who want to connect with more than just the Northbay.
