Bring your interactive art and celebrate your burner community with daytime and nighttime activities.

Indoor Activities:
Over 20 performers, two stages, theme camps, carnival games, art cars, dancing, finely dressed folks, participation, community, and great art! This (formal) event will include everything and anything you are willing to contribute to the experience! Don’t forget to dress your very burnery-best!

This space is HUGE and cavernous – but also an indoor-only space. Bring all the things: lights, projections, full camps, whatever huge annoying f***ing things you have! Don’t be a darkwad; there are no windows! Tell all your friends, fellow artists, freaks, and the like!
