Alberta burners are scattered throughout the province, however the greatest concentrations seem to be in the Calgary and Edmonton areas. Although each of these cities has a designated Regional Contact, they both communicate regularly and view the entire province as their community.
Alberta burners are Doers! From collaboration towards travel, theme camps, projects and activities at the Big Burn in the Desert; to planning, facilitating and producing a variety of events in the province, including Freezer Burn, Decomp, Santacon, Leprecon, the Kit and Kaboodle Circus and Sunday4Play. There are also a range of workshops, parties, playa bike rides, costume swaps, art and theme camp fundraisers and adult and family events.
Alberta burners travel! Quite often the community will visit and collaborate with our neighbors in Vancouver, Victoria and Saskatchewan. There are also a variety of local festivals and events that have an Alberta burner presence.
