What Is Burning Man?
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather in Nevada's Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever. Burning Man is also a year-round culture, based on the Ten Principles. Read Burning Man's mission statement.
