Burning Man – Nevada, U.S.A.

Home  /  North America  /  Current Page

One of the most famous festivals in the Americas, and arguably the world, Burning Man is an annual week-long event that takes place in Black Rock City, Nevada. It has taken place since 1986, originating in San Francisco but soon migrating to the United State’s northern Nevada. 

The event is described by organizers “as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.” It’s famous for EXTREMELY unique art installations, vehicles, bicycles and attendee clothing choices. The festival’s name is derived from the Saturday night (last night) burning of that year’s wooden effigy.

Constantly becoming more popular, 2014 boasted attendance records of over 65,000.
