Regional Community

We Philly folks are no strangers to the Black Rock Desert. Some of us have been making the trek for years now. We’re a diverse group of fire performers, artists, gearheads and musicians. We regularly make treks to New York, Baltimore, Washington DC as well as other places to gather with Burners from other places.
