)'( Welcome to Cosmic Burn )'(

This is an officially sanctioned Regional Burn. While the Burning Man organization has no involvement with the actual production of this event, the event will follow the tenets provided by (y)our Community of the 10 Principles.

Cosmic Burn is a multi-day campout event. We organize the event space around a Center Camp and everyone is encouraged to take advantage of the space. We bring a stage and a sound system. You can host events and play music in the Center Camp. 

There are no vendors, however ice is for sale. 

What Happens at Cosmic?

This depends totally on you, the participant! What do you want from the weekend? What do you think (y)our community wants? How can you contribute?
What we are creating is a canvas for you to build upon. We do our best to keep your options unrestricted. We must follow all Federal, State, and local laws, but beyond that, you are free to be and create the person you are or have always wanted to be. You are encouraged to create and display art that means something to you.


We are encouraging EVERY SINGLE PARTICIPANT to volunteer. There are many opportunities to volunteer, as an all-volunteer group helps facilitate the event and increase ownership and participation. There are plenty of ways to contribute to the event.

    Tent campers can choose wooded spots or a grass/lawn area. Trailers, RVs, car/van campers are welcome but there are no hook-ups. All camping is first-come, first-served. Depending on the weather, this may be a carry-in, carry-out situation, but distances to car drop-off points and camping sites are very doable especially with a wagon. We will know if we can drive to campsites when we get to the event. There may not be specified quiet camping. Quieter camping will be farthest from the Center Camp.
