San Francisco Bay Area Burners unite! Whether you are a veteran Burner, Burgin, aspiring Sparkle Pony, or just curious about the whole subculture, this group is here to facilitate participation in the many off-Playa events that go on year round in the default world.
What is Burning Man?
Burning Man is an annual event and a thriving year-round culture. The event takes place the week leading up to and including Labor Day, in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. The Burning Man organization (Black Rock City LLC) creates the infrastructure of Black Rock City, wherein attendees (or "participants") dedicate themselves to the spirit of community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, leaving no trace. As simple as this may seem, trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.
