Washington DC

Regional Community

Our group includes Washington, DC and surrounding metro areas which include parts of Virginia and Maryland. We have many regional theme camps, some of which make it to the dust, like DC Not Washington.  For more details please go to our website at http://dcburners.org

Our regional burn is called Playa del Fuego (PDF) and is held twice a year in the Spring & Fall in Odessa, Delaware. DC Burners hold regular “takeovers” of popular bars and put together Santarchy, the Bunny Hop, and many parties.
