We may be far away from the playa, but Virginia is on FIRE! The Virginia burner community is growing all the time, with very active communities in Richmond, Charlottesville and a growing Virginia Beach/Hampton/Norfolk and Lynchburg/Roanoke community.
Looking to meet some of your Virginia burner family? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or join the mailing list or Facebook group, listed below, to get info about local happenings (including frequent Richmond spin jams and other fun stuff). Come play with the Party Liberation Front and Man Camp at Transformus and Justice League at PDF and meet some folks!
Look for the beautiful Davina the Dragon driving across the Playa – she hails from Charlottesville and will very likely be manned by all sorts of Virginia folks!
In Richmond on the first Friday of the month? Stop by Gallery 5 (200 W. Marshall Street) for music and fire during RVA First Fridays, April – October (except for June and July, as we prep for Transformus).
In Lynchburg, starting September 2014, we will begin to meet on the second Sunday of each month at Percival's Island (behind Riverfront Park on Jefferson Street). Join us by the James for fellowship, stewardship and workshops. Play an instrument? Bring it and play along with the rhythm of the James. Once the weather cools we will head inside, updates will be posted here.
Get involved and find out about local happenings by signing up on our Announcement list, chat with other Burners on our Discussion lists, or follow us via your social media of choice - but definitely come out and get involved!
The Virginia Announce list is a moderated announcements-only list for events of interest to local Burners. Recipients get regular updates, event listings, and Burning Man news from this list.

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. -- Jack Kerouac ”
“The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give. - Philip Kindred Dick”
