Regional Community

From our humble beginnings in 2001, the Toronto Burning Man Community has evolved into a vibrant community with year-round participatory events. We’ve been working to inspire people to become makers, builders, and art advocates, working to change the face of public art in our city. 

While we have many teams in our city, indivdually producing art in its myriad of forms, Toronto's main Burner team is Flame Ontario (AKA FlameON), which is producing our new regional event: Side Burn!

Our Toronto community has multiple affiliated events which include:

  • Decompression

  • SideBurn:

  • Bi-Weekly Drink Nights (Thursday’s @ 6:30 p.m.)

  • Brides of March (March)

  • Urban Golf (spring)

  • Bunnarchy (April)

  • Newbie Picnic (Summer)

  • Santarchy (December)

  • Art Fundraisers (ongoing)

Our art projects and friends' projects include:
