Ohio - Southern

Regional Community

Welcome to the Southern Ohio regional burner network! I am your new Regional Contact, Lydia, based out of the Cincinnati Area. I am so excited to get to know you all! Southern Ohio is home to an incredible number of creative burners all over the region who come together at many gathering points across the area.

You'll be happy to learn there are two official burns in Ohio: Scorched Nuts takes place every Memorial Day weekend, and Mosaic happens the first weekend in October. They both occur on the same land called Reclaim, which is just south of Athens, and only about 2 hours from the Cincinnati Area. This land is a called 'Reclaim' as it was once a site of a lot of industrial destruction, and has since become a beautiful, vibrant, remote, and well preserved piece of land.  Like any Burn, both Scorched Nuts and Mosaic hold to the 10 principles, and are leave-no-trace events. DON'T forget to read the event survival guides thoroughly before attending either event! 

For updates on these and other events happening in the Ohio area, there is a Facebook Group called Burning Man Ohio for discussion, promotion, and information about events in Ohio inspired by or related to Burning Man. You may also use this group to discuss events outside of Ohio, organize ride-shares, find burner related resources such as camping supplies & equipment, make new friends, start a meet & greet, or just talk about Burning Man itself (or its 10 principles.) 

Ohioians who share this common interest are encouraged to meet, network, learn, and grow, combine resources, and make the "Default world" more tolerable for one another. There are many places in this region to connect, including the Cincinnati-based community that operates out of art-space, the KOIpound, and other spaces located in Dayton and Columbus area (More information to come!)

Have a question or just want to reach out to the region? Send an email to [email protected] and consider joining the mailing list below! While we try to get timely information out to the announcemnet list, we are also careful to not overwhelm it with traffic so we tend to only announce major upcoming events relevant to your region.
