The event began with about 20 east coast residents who had been to the original Burning Man in the Nevada desert, and wanted to get together a little closer to home to celebrate the spirit of the event. They joined together on the beach of Assateague Island on Maryland’s coast in 1998 for a weekend. Playa del Fuego grew until a new site was needed to accommodate all the participants. The event was moved to a horse farm run by Vietnam Veterans in Delaware where it remains today. Since then it has grown to over 1,300 participants with volunteers working on event production, community art grants, managing the nonprofit organization as a whole, and spreading PDF and Burning Man culture into the greater community.
