Regional Community

The Michigan Burners community is designed to welcome interested burners to our growing community, build connections, foster unique and unusual gatherings, and grow artistic and community participation. We welcome you to our burner world!

A place to connect Detroit, Ann Arbor and other Michigan area Burners!  Know that we do a variety of get together's and will post them here and please feel free to post related topics here.  

We also do Meet & Greets, as well as Newbie Orientations. (you will want to read this even if you have been!! http://www.burningman.com/first_timers/) and a smattering of community events and parties like Santarchy, Bunarchy and hopefully this year Brides of March and Urban Golf. 

If you have any questions about getting equipment, yourself, or anything out to the playa, here's the place to ask.  There is a truck that fills up rather quickly run by Early Poppycock that leaves from the downriver area.  More details will be showing up late spring/early summer.  Pay by the cubic foot, everything is crated, etc.

Please read the 10 Principles of our community, we honor and follow them very closely!


Here is a good article on being a newbie   Hi, n00bs! http://blog.burningman.com/2012/03/preparation-2/hi-n00bs/

If you don't know we hold a Regional Burn called Lakes Of Fire. Its the third weekend of June this year and a great time to meet people, we also host a decomp after the big burn. http://www.lakesoffire.org/. We also have a facebook page for that.

Join us for SPARC (Society for Promotion of Art & Recreation in the Community) events in the future. That is our NFP to help the community.

If you have any questions or ideas you want to talk about please feel free to hit us up so we can talk about them or of course post to the list to get a conversation started!
