We started by a miracle! Just a bunch of big hearted burners with similar goals in mind! Our goal is to have a burn that is intimate, different, and takes us back to when burns began.
We want to make sure that once you've attended SideBurn, that you go back out into the world a better person. We hope to instill the 10 principles in the hearts of everyone who comes through our gate.
Leave no trace
SideBurn is an LNT event!
This means, we don't leave anything behind. Bring it in, take it out. We do not provide trash or dumpsters, so please bring enough trash bags for you and your camp! Also do not dump things (black water, grey water, PJ etc) onto the ground!
We pride ourselves in respecting each other at our event just as much as we expect you to respect the community in which our event is held. Be kind and courteous to the locals and neighbors! Remember, we are their guests and we want for us (and other similar events) to be welcomed back!
Please purchase local if you can! We want to thank the community around us for letting us have our event in their area! We will also be doing a canned-food-drive at the main gate and we will have a cash-boot. all canned goods will be donated to local churches and shelters and all money donated will be given to local charities and fire department!
We are currently giving our board a beautiful makeover. this information will be released as soon as all positions have been filled.
PLEASE be radically self reliant! Not only is it one of the 10 principles, but it will also help you and the ones around you to have a better experience! REMEMBER that there are ABSOLUTELY no in-and-outs. Once you leave the event, you are out unless you have extra tickets on hand. keep it simple, just bring what you will need!!
Don't forget that we need volunteers! We need volunteers for LNT all the way up to medical and fire safety. reach out to us in our "contact us" section at the bottom of the page if you are interested in helping out! Thanks in advance!
