We may be sold out, but this description has been updated as of 6/28 - WITH NEW LOCATION INFORMATION! Woo! (It's in a few places down there so you might want to just reread it... Refresh your memory before you get quizzed at the gate.)

SunBurn, New Mexico's regional Burning Man event, will be held for its third year at the exciting Eaves Movie Ranch outside of Santa Fe! This year we will open the gate at noon on July 5th and conclude at noon on July 8th.  Join us for a cultural movement centered around art, community, fire, and embracing Burning Man's 10 Principles, along with our 11th adopted Principle, Gratitude.  Our theme this year is "The Sun is Flat Too!" We hope to encourage you to riff on space, conspiracy theory, the improbable, the impossible, the weird, and beyond.  Anything is possible; expect anything to happen.  The event is a village built by participant contribution to the experiment of radical self expression and do-ocracy.  There is no corporate sponsorship or provided entertainment.  What happens here is up to you!  You are entering a decommidified space that values who you are, not what you have.  You can collaborate, be inclusive, be creative, and be connective with your fellow SunBurners and also the world around you.  Sunburn continues to be a hard-won expression of creative and loving New Mexicans and visitors from afar.  We welcome all players, new and old.

Note: SunBurn is not a rave.  SunBurn is an interactive community for artists, performers, and musicians, all participants, creating both large and small scale art on private land.

Please note: We will be under a burn ban, and participants and organizers will adhere to all local and State fire ordinances. There will be no hard fuel, ember-producing fires, campfires, or fireworks.  Smoking may only take place within an enclosed vehicle.  The permanent movie set structure on the property is NOT for smoking. Spark arrests on generators will be required, as well as safe storage for fuel (bins, kiddie pools, etc.).

A couple final things:

And lastly, these events are not possible without your participation. SunBurn  like Burning Man, is not a spectator sport.
