Nevada - Reno

Regional Community

Greetings from your Reno Regional Contacts: Danielle “Gemini” Gann-Lind, Rod Coleman and Dale Weber. Reno and the surrounding communities of Northern Nevada and Northeast California are the Gateway To Burning Man. We like to think of ourselves as ‘Backyard Burners’. Reno has a great and ever growing Burner Community, with events happening all year round.

2024 is starting off with a bang! We're looking forward to our Town Hall in early April, once again at the Generator. We will again spotlight multiple art projects destined for playa, local happenings, interaction with local groups and shared art grant opportunities. The Generator is continuing to offer educational/skills classes and building big art for playa. In March our RCs and local burners helped to coordinate the BM Ops Summit, held at the Generator. Coming up May31-June2, is the Multi-Regional Summit, a weekend leadership campout with our regional neighbors in Lake Tahoe and Sacramento. June brought our Mutant Vehicle Show and Shine bringing over a dozen art cars and hundreds of attendees to the one-day outdoor show. Reno Burners LLC will again produce Reno Decompression, our only official art grant fundraiser, in October, moving back to the 4th St neighborhood. Many local art cars and Burners will bring their distinct style to the Nevada Day Parade, an annual tradition, at the end of October in Carson City. 

 We are thrilled to have the Burning Man Reno office in town and we continue to collaborate on projects including Share the Love valentine making to benefit troubled youth and the elderly.
