Burning Man D.C.

Burning Man D.C.

Burning Man D.C. - Burning Man reps ask for help from D.C. lawmakers, Annual music/art/tech bacchanal Burning Man has long prided itself on existing "off the grid". But representatives of the free-spirited event, which takes place in the Nevada desert, are in Washington D.C. this week to meet with lawmakers in a bid to convince them to offer government support for future Burning Man festivals.

Our group includes Washington, DC and surrounding areas which include Virginia and Maryland. Burners from Washington, DC and Baltimore are pretty inseparable; plus we have many burners join us from afar (WI,FL,VT,NJ,NY,IL,MA). Some of us camp together at Burning Man, some with Snowflake Village or Videogasm, and others join other camps.
Our Balt-Wash & beyond burners organize two east coast events a year called Playa del Fuego (PDF) - Spring & Fall. We've left the beach for a c/o private site in Odessa, Delaware. We also hold fundraisers to support ideas we want to try out at PDF. Many burners have been gathering in Baltimore every Tuesday for 4 years at a local pub. DC peeps meet irregularly for drinks or dancing.

Being a regional contact is important to me because I believe that the community aspect of the Burning Man culture is extremely important and know that it has changed my life in astounding and wonderful ways. I want to help others experience i
Playa del Fuego, a five day four night regional burn happens every Memorial and Columbus day weekend (late May and early October) in Deleware.

Philadelphia Experiment, a Philadelphia theme camp and organization, often host large costume parties throughout the year with art, performances, fire and music.

A variety of other smaller events happen in DC and Baltimore during the year; including Santarchy, the Bunny Hop, and various happy hours, parties and performances.
