Burning Man

Burning Man 2024: Curiouser & Curioser

Burning Man is the place to find out who you are, then take it a step further.

The Burning Man Project is dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance, once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Departing one week later, having left no trace whatsoever.

Burning Man Project

Even considering going to Burning Man for the first time can be seriously daunting. And while it’s true that Burning Man is not for the faint of heart, with some research, preparation, and planning, an experience — and opportunity — beyond your wildest dreams awaits you in Black Rock City.

Burning Man at Black Rock

There are no rules about how one must behave or express oneself at this event (save the rules that serve to protect the health, safety, and experience of the community at large); rather, it is up to each participant to decide how they will contribute and what they will give to this community. There is no dress code or even a costume theme. All you need to do is decide how you want to express yourself through what you wear, how you paint your face, and what you wear on your head. Plan, also, to bring items for barter with fellow participants. Come in to Etoile Costume & Party Center, look around and let us help you bring your self-expression to life. We can also suggest barter items for you.

Burning ManThe event takes place on an ancient lake bed, known as the playa. By the time the event is completed and the volunteers leave, sometimes nearly a month after the event has ended, there will be no trace of the city that was, for a short time, the most populous town in the entire county. Art is an unavoidable part of this experience, and in fact, is such a part of the experience that Larry Harvey, founder of the Burning Man project, gives a theme to each year, to encourage a common bond to help tie each individual’s contribution together in a meaningful way. Participants are encouraged to find a way to help make the theme come alive.
