San Diego

Regional Community

San Diego is a very laid back place. And we are a pretty laid back community.

We have events going on all the time. Be they large weekend campouts of 1500+, or small beach fire jams, of four or five. There is always a place that you can come to find us.

Our online community is fabulous. We are estimated to be around 1800 strong, but probably larger, because most Burners around here do not want to deal with a discussion list. They are busy making art, or surfing, or hiking, or selling cheese. But they usually check in once in a while.

We have pretty constant weather out here, and it is usually pretty dry. On top of that, this is Southern California. A walk down the boardwalk in Pacific Beach, is a lot like a walk down the Esplanade in a lot of visual ways. You will see old men covered in glitter body paint, rollerblading in slow motion to his own personal sound system playing classical music. That sort of stuff happens here. So, we don’t even stand out.

We have an LLC that has been established to provide us with a blank canvas to play upon.

We have two Regional Contacts located near downtown San Diego.

We serve the Burning Man community within San Diego County. However we also quite often work with the Orange County folks a lot and have a close relationship with them as well as many people from LA and even a few from San Francisco.
