Playa Del Fuego is pleased to announce a new grant program to provide artists and organizations around the mid-Atlantic region with funding to further the mission of Playa del Fuego, Inc. These grants are specifically meant to support participatory, interactive art, and community projects beyond the Burning Man Regional Event, Playa del Fuego. Eligibility: Artists and organizations that share a passion for the burner ethos and demonstrate a commitment to bringing participatory, interactive art, or forward-thinking collaborative projects to their communities may apply.

Spring 2015 Registrations Closed (Volunteer Schedule Still Open)

Our 2015 Theme Camp, Sound Camp, and What Where Registrations have come to a close to give our coordinators time to organize all the awesomeness our community is bringing.  

Never fear though, we know the real reason you came by is to volunteer and that will remain open until the Sunday prior to the burn.  There are still plenty of prime slots available so get them now before they are gone!!!
