Celebrating 30 Years of Burning Man

The first Burning Man took place in San Francisco in 1986, drawing a small, curious crowd on Baker Beach. Thirty years later, the experience draws tens of thousands of people, for an anticipated, week-long celebration, never forgotten.

Burning Man 2016 takes place August 28 – September 5, in the Black Rock Desert. This year’s theme — Da Vinci’s Workshop.

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” – Leonardo DaVinci
