Regional Community

Come Be Creative in the National Capital Region

Ottawa’s Burner community has been growing for over a decade started our first Regional Burn, Mapleman, that was held Canada Day 2002. The group has continued to enjoy steady growth at more than 320 members and has developed a strong bond with the nearby Canadian burner communities in Toronto and Montreal. Many of our us camp together and create art at other festivals around Ontario and Quebec plus have instigated a number of theme camps on playa since 2004 and continue to do so in 2016.
