Burning Man 2020 canceled. Refer to "Update: Black Rock City in The Multiverse" for information about other projects and activities involving the Burning Man Project.

All is not lost, however. You can enjoy a Virtual Burning Man experience through these sources:

  • City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man is a documentary film about the evolution of Burning Man from its beginning on Baker Beach in San Francisco to the event we have today in the Black Rock Desert north of Reno. It was produced in 2017 in conjunction with a Burning Man exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art.
  • From Burning Man itself, you can have a virtual Burning Man Multiverse experience. From now through Sunday, September 6, 2020, you are invited to participate in numerous activities, including building and burning your own Mini Man (in a safe and legal manner, of course). Check this out for other online Burning Man activities.

Burning Man is a huge art festival dedicated to community, self-expression, and self-reliance. The annual event is held on the open playa of the Black Rock Desert, 100 miles north of Reno. Every year, this remote and virtually uninhabited place is transformed into Black Rock City, one of Nevada's largest towns for a week. From a small gathering to burn the first Man on a San Francisco beach in 1986, Burning Man now attracts some 80,000 attendees from around the world.

Burning Man 2020 takes place from Sunday, August 30 through Monday, September 7. The art theme for Burning Man 2020 is "The Multiverse."

Learn More About Burning Man

Even though I have attended Burning Man several times, I find that it's not possible to adequately describe the experience and what goes on. Burning Man is one of those things you need to see and participate in for yourself in order to understand the experience. Your experience will be unique and different from that of everyone else. If you are a virgin (someone who has never attended Burning Man), the best place to start is at the source. Here are some Burning Man website links to get you started. Once you get going, these will lead to a whole lot more.

Watch Burning Man Online

Burners and wannabes who can't be in Black Rock City can still get a look at the event via online live streaming. The feed comes to us from YouTube and is available as Burning Man Live Stream. There is obviously nothing to see until the event starts, so click the link to see what's on the air during the dates when Burning Man is happening.

Burning Man Around Reno

There are numerous art installations around Reno that first appeared at Burning Man. Two of the most prominent are the "BELIEVE" and "Space Whale" sculptures in City Plaza, across from City Hall and next to the Virginia Street Bridge. Others include "Portal of Evolution" at Bicentennial Park and "Pentamonium" at the Lear Theater. The "Reno Playa Art Project," features more Burning Man art. This is a great use of vacant land created by the demolition of two derelict motels. It is located in the 500 block of N. Virginia Street, across from Circus Circus.
