Burn the River is a non-proﬁt event celebrating community, art and self expression. This is a burner based event, produced by volunteers from the Sacramento regional community for the community. We strive to create an event space that promotes participants not spectators. This is not a show, it’s a collaborative interactive gathering with
DJ’s, Live Music, Performance Art, Fire Art, Theme Camps, Interactive Art, Art Cars, and so much more.
We are asking for the Community’s help to make this the biggest and best Decompression yet in Sacramento.
Our small temporary River City is made up of event builders, theme camps, mutant vehicles, artists, performance artists, dancers, musicians, costume artists, event producers, gate and perimeter staff, rangers, lamp lighters and too many other categories to name.
Each year we have this celebration about a month after Black Rock City (aka Burning Man) is burned and dismantled. We create a space within the walls of our small temporary city that allows us to express our art and our local burner culture.
This culture is based on the 10 principles of Burning Man. The event is de-commodified – once you pass the gate there are no vendors. Nothing is for sale and notheing can be purchased. If you get a drink made for you it is a gift from another participant. The art you interact with is brought by the artist. The band or the DJ playing is gifting their music. The fire dancers perform because they love it. The green tea and meditation space is there because that person brought it, made the tea and then served it to you.
