Regional Community

We may be far away from the playa, but Virginia is on FIRE! The Virginia burner community is growing all the time, with very active communities in Richmond, Charlottesville and the Tidewater (Norfolk/VA Beach, etc) area.

Looking to meet some of your Virginia burner family, or get the inside scoop on whats happening around the region or in your town? Join the mailing list or Facebook groups (listed below) to get info about local stuff. Have an event to submit, want to host a meetup, or have a great idea to bring to the table?  Send an email to and chat with us about it!

Come play with the Party Liberation Front and Man Camp at Transformus, or Justice League at PDF! Look out for the beautiful Davina the Dragon driving across the Playa – she hails from Charlottesville and will very likely be manned by all sorts of Virginia folks!

Richmond hosts "First Fridays" each month, and during the months of April and October PLF burns extra bright when burners from all over Virginia converge on Gallery 5 for a night of music, fire, art & dancing. During 2019 the dates will be April 5th (Gallery 5's 14th birthday!), and October 4th (13th Annual Carnival of 5 Fires).

Great things are happening in Tidewater!  We host Monthly M&G's at various locations around the Tidewater area.  Join the Tidewater and Virginia FB pages to stay in touch. Piece of Cake Productions LLC is a crew of Tidewater Burner makers, builders and dreamers. Together they build large-scale, interactive art for Burning Man and regional burn events. The current project, MEGA CAKE, will be at  Black Rock City 2019.
