We are burners of New York's Capital District and surrounding areas. From Albany and Troy to Saratoga to Woodstock and even pieces of western Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire. We've been making an annual caravan up to Firefly, a semiannual caravan down south for Playa del Fuego, and enjoy hooking up with NYC burners. There are local arts events happening every week like Troy Night Out (last Friday of every month) and First Fridays in Albany. Participants welcome!

We have sporadic Burner dinner outings and Burner potlucks and parties whenever people host them. We collaborate on art and travel for nearby events, such as Firefly in Vermont, Playa del Fuego in Delaware, NYC Decom, PEX in Philadelphia, and… Burning Man! =)
