Newbie Orientations


If this is your first time going to the desert or maybe you have been once and want a little more information, this is for you. Bring your paper and pens and all your questions.

Please bring your own chair, snacks, beverages and anything else you may need.

There are several documents to help bring you up to speed. Please print them out and bring your questions to the orientation.

Also please read the "First Timers Guide" on the Burning Man website. This will help answer many of your questions before heading out to the desert.

There will be three official orientations  in 2016...
May 22 -
June 12 -
July 16 -

Check back for more information.
