The Minnesota Regional Contacts serve primarily Minnesota, but also act as points of contact for many burners in Western Wisconsin and the Eastern Dakotas. Minnesota has a diverse and ever-expanding Burning Man community that has seen a great deal of growth in recent years. We enthusiastically reach out to other groups in the communities we serve, tapping into the incredible arts community in the Twin Cities and Duluth/Superior.
Outside of Minnesota few people realize just how rich and vital our arts community is, with a long-standing Art Car Parade, dozens of festivals and arts events, as well as being home to some of the most highly regarded institutions in the United States, including the Guthrie Theater and Walker Art Center. Larry Harvey's presentation at the Walker, "La Vie Boheme", should be required reading for any member of the Burning Man community that has ever been asked to explain Burning Man.

|personal quotes:||"My wife and I have raised our children from the moment they were born to celebrate their individuality, follow their passion, and to view life as constant opportunity to strengthen their community through diversity of thought, belief, and action. Through our ties to the Burning Man community we have found people who believe in this same ideal. As long as this community continues to gather we will be with them, for they have become part of us and we of them." — Reverend Zed|

The Burning Man community in Minnesota is very active, getting together at events within our community as well as hosting frequent gatherings at our various homes. We gather weekly throughout the year every Wednesday at Bob's Java Hut, a coffee shop in Minneapolis that has made us welcome for many years. We actively encourage new members of our family, as well as people who are simply curious about Burning Man, to come visit and learn more about the event.
Please check back for even more information about the Burning Man community in your area. We're gathering more details — coming soon!
