Upstate New York

Regional Community

Welcome Upstate New York Burners!

We’re excited you’ve found your way to our little piece of the web. So many amazing things are happening Upstate right now, and we are thrilled that you want to participate!

The official Upstate NY Regional burn – PortalBurn – brings together 400+ participants every summer to celebrate burn culture in our local communities.

This year, we are excited to have our first burn at our new home in Hannibal, NY. We have so many opportunities for YOU to become involved in creating our community. From work weekends, to art grants, to volunteer shifts at the burn, there are so many ways for everyone to get involved!

Learn more at or on Facebook –

So now that you found us, do you want to be more involved with connecting burners in your region? Get in touch with any of the Upstate NY RCs by sending an email to, or for regular updates and announcements, join the mailing list below. There are also burner networks on social media that you can connect with – check out HudsonValleyBurners, Upstate New York Burners, Western New York Burners, Burning Man Ithaca, and PortalBurn on FB to get a sense of what is happening.  Reach out! We'd love to see how you burn!
