California - Los Angeles
Welcome to the Los Angeles region information page!
The LA region is HUGE! It stretches all the way up and includes Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Ojai all the way down through the Beach Cities to the Orange County border — and all the way out to include the Inland Empire and everything in between.
We’re not just large — we’re also a very diverse region with passionate burners from all walks of life — originating from all over the world and culminating here in LALA land.
~~~~~CONNECT WITH US ON THE FACEBOOKS!~~~~~~
The best way to know what our community is to jump in and say “hi!” in our community discussion group on Facebook called LA Burners. It’s a great place to introduce yourself, and get a feel for some of what’s going on in this big ol’ region of ours.
We also have a Facebook page that’s more for announcements than discussions — it’s called (shockingly) LA Burning Man. It’s also the page we use to create official FB event pages, so if you’re looking for something to do, check there first!
~~~~~GET AWESOME NON-SPAM-LIKE INFO DELIVERED RIGHT TO YOUR INBOX!~~~~~~
Our Inland Empire-area regional (still considered “LA” region, we *did* say it was a huge region!) is the delightfully charming Do or Di — who has taken over every-so-often informational newsletter-type thingy that had fallen into disrepair, dusted it off, and polished into a useful, informative announcement email/newsletter that will help keep you on top of All Things LA Burning Man.
The deets to get on that there list so you can stay in the loop newsletter-style are in the links at the bottom of this page.
Ever in doubt on where to find info on LA Burning Man? Check out our website – as it has links to all of the places where you can ACTUALLY find current info! 🙂
~~~~~WE LOVE EMAIL TOO!~~~~~~
Questions? Comments? You can get in touch with your ten LA regional contacts (all at one time!) by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll get back to you as soon as humanly possible!
~~~~~MONTHLY MEETUPS ALL OVER THE PLACE~~~~~
Pre-COVID, we had meetups in several places around LA, and are excited to be restarting them!
We’ll be posting about any upcoming meetups on our LA Burning Man Facebook Page, in the LA Burners FB discussion group, and if possible, in the LA Burning Man Newsletter (playa dust in your inbox)!
NORTHSIDE – Our longest running and most on-auto-pilot meetup is at the Burner-owned The Other Door in Burbank (you’ll get a hint of the French Quarter every time you go in)! Details linked on the LA Burning Man FB page.
WESTSIDE-ADJACENT – We’d been meeting pretty regularly at the Mandrake in Culver City, and hope to start those up again whenever we can. Event pages for these – when they happen – will be linked from the LA Burning Man FB page: https://www.facebook.com/laburningman/
WESTSIDE – Looking for a new regular location, if you have any ideas, email email@example.com.
MORE GENERAL INFO ON MEETUPS:
WE WANT EVEN MORE!!! MEETUPS:
We’re on the hunt for awesome, friendly locations that enjoy the creative, sometimes dusty burners that can help us bond, learn, and grow! Restaurant/bars do nicely, as they take the pressure off of private individuals hosting, but we’re also open to spaces that would be good for crafting, classes (think TEDx LABM-style), and any other creative types of meeting that you can shake a stick at!
If you are connected to or know of such a place, please let us know! BONUS PRIZE (and a STAR – gold AND otherwise!) if you’d like to help host one! We lean towards having them at regular intervals, but any chance to meet up is better than none!
~~~~~WE HAVE MORE FACEBOOK GROUPS THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A DUSTY STICK AT!~~~~~~
In addition to the main LA Burners Facebook group, we’ve created a billion* smaller sub-LA-region Facebook groups, so you can connect with your local peeps more easily.
