2017 Reno Tahoe Events and Festivals

Burning Man

Black Rock Desert
August 27, 2017 -September 4, 2017

Tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-reliance and self-expression. In Black Rock City, you won’t be the weirdest kid in the classroom and you’ll become a part of the growing community of Burners who are active year-round. 
What is Burning Man?  
Burning Man is a practice in community, an annual gathering of 60,000 "Burners" who meet in the Black Rock Desert of Northern Nevada to create art, exchange ideas, and participate in the burning of the Man, a symbol whose meaning is as varied as the attendees themselves.
To truly understand this event, one must participate. However, click here for eloquent overview of this experimental community, which challenges its members to express and rely on themselves to a degree that is not normally encountered in one's day-to-day life.
