The Regional Burn Showcase

Just 34? Are You Sure?

All known, publicly listed (website), Burning Man approved, official Regional Burns are showcased here - but more exist. Some are just getting off the ground, a few don't have a web presence yet, while others wish to remain private events.

If you know the web address of a Regional Burn not listed below, please Submit A Regional Burn Website For Listing.

R

egional Burn events are the crown jewels of the Burner community. They're concrete examples of how the Burning Man Festival's principles have grown beyond the boundaries of the Nevada playa. Many people get their first taste of Burner culture at Regional Burns.

Vox Ignis does its very best to ensure that the event dates and locations listed below are correct and current, but you should always check the information on an event's website before planning any trip.

Did you ever wonder where all the Regional Burn events were located, when they occur and how they compare? Do you know how to find the Regional Burn closest to you? Would you be surprised to learn that each of the Regional Burns has a very distinct feel, flavor, or charm?

Expand your horizons and explore the world of Regional Burns.

What Is A Regional Burn?

There has been considerable and lengthy discussion on this topic, with a wide array of opinions, but the general consensus is:

Regional Burn [ree'-juh-nl bern] n. - An outdoor, camping-oriented event that upholds the 10 Principles of the Burning Man Festival. An effigy or construction of some sort is usually burned at the height of the event, and the event must in some way involve the area's Burning Man Regional Contact - hence the "Regional" part of the term. The event must also meet other criteria (like the use of insurance) set by the Burning Man organization in order to be considered an official Regional Burn.

If the same event were held without the involvement of a Burning Man Regional Contact, it would simply be called a "Burn" or a "Burner event" (and not listed here).
