California - East Bay

Regional Community

We are located in the the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. From Bethel Island in the delta to Alameda Island on the bay, the town of Crockett to the city of Fremont and all points in between, we are everywhere!

We come together to bring Burning Man’s values and community spirit to our neighbors and friends. Our focus is on community, participatory activities, learning and building art that we take to the desert and burn.

We meet monthly to socialize, to learn new things and have fun. Find out more by subscribing to our low-volume, announcements list below or find us on social media.

Looking for locally produced, Burning Man bound art? Here's the 2023 Northern California Directory of Playa Art Projects! The 2024 edition will be published in May or June, so stay tuned!
