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 are a very large and 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!~~~~~~
For the past 4 years, 2 of our 5 LA Regional Contacts have been sending out a weekly LA Burning Man Announce newsletter with all things LA Burner in it, but life has caught up to us and we're currently only able to send out newsletters when there's official news to share. Here's the deets to get on that there list so you can stay in the loop…
HOW TO SUBSCRIBE & UNSUBSCRIBE TO THE LA BURNING MAN NEWSLETTER :
To subscribe, email :
To unsubscribe, email :
There's also a sign up form on the LABurningMan.com site, but it's not connected directly to the mailing list, so for now we're having to manually transfer the sign ups – so your best bet is to use the email links above.
~~~~~THE RAD (and currently a bit neglected) LABURNINGMAN.COM!~~~~~~
Want even more LA Burning Man news, events, and love? Take a gander at our NEW-ish (shiny!) http://www.laburningman.com. It's everything you've wanted in a regional site and more!
There's a place to make a profile for your camp, or art car, or art, or yourself! There's classifieds where you can connect even more! And the best part (IMHO) is the one-stop-shop for LA BM events, our events calendar. Go take a look-see for yourself!
~~~~~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~~~~~
We have meetups in a few places around LA, though because of challanges finding locations and/or peeps to run them, they aren't (yet!) as regular as we'd like. Check the LA Burning Man Facebook page's events for updates!
WESTSIDE-ADJACENT – We've been meeting pretty regularly at the Mandrake in Culver City, event pages for this 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.
NORTHSIDE – First Sunday of the month (at the burner-owned The Other Door in Burbank – this one is un-manned so just show up and introduce yourself to [soon won't be] dusty strangers!)
DOWNTOWN – First Friday of the month (rotating locations), check this page for updates:
