Playa del Fuego 2020 Has Been Canceled

One of the principles held closely by the Burning Man community is Civic Responsibility and the FirePony Creative Society board assumes responsibility for the public welfare of our participants while at one of our events.  And so, it is with great sadness that we inform you that on Monday March 23, 2020 the FirePony board unanimously voted to cancel Playa del Fuego 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Please refer to Coronavirus COVID-19 Update #3 for the full communication, including ticket refund options, volunteer reserve tickets, and art grants.  

While the cancellation is a great loss, there is also great hope and optimism for PdF 2021.  We received a record number of art grant submissions for PdF 2020 and we are hopeful that there will be new inspirations for artists in 2021 resulting in double the art and double the fun!  We plan to use this time to tackle some of the long term projects that seem to get put off year after year and we are confident that Playa del Fuego 2021 will be the shiniest, most art filled, most inclusive PdF yet!

Available Leadership Positions for PDF 2020

The beginning stages in planning Playa del Fuego 2020 are happening now!

First steps are community members stepping up to fill vacant leadership positions.

Vacant positions available include:

*  Planning Committee Event Co-Coordinator
*  Planning Committee Event Treasurer
*  Signage Coordinator
* Rangers needs shift leads, Khaki, and Coordinators
*  Sound Coordinator

"Leadership" is sometimes a daunting word to read. People can get intimidated by the responsibility and pressures the words insinuate. However, many roles are considered Leadership that are stepping stones in the progress of being comfortable and confident in your abilities. Some people are even just afraid of using a Radio to communicate.  The good news is - we can teach that!  Our team of experienced Coordinators and community members are here to help you learn, and grow, and be an integral part of PdF growing.

Many skill sets are needed from manual labor and engineering, to clerical work and information sorting, to helping design and define the event layout and art itself, and anyone can be a part of it! You just have to step up and be a part of the team!
Join us.  Please fill out the PdF 2020 Volunteer Recruitment Form to start your journey in helping make our amazing event happen!

Tamaqua Memorial Day Parade

Tamaqua has a memoral day starting on Monday May 27 @ 10am.  The parade is run by the American Legion.

The route is Broad Street, from St. Jerome’s Church to the YMCA (most of the Main Street).  You can make the first right in town, go up Stadium Hill, make the second left, and the second light puts you on south 309.

For more information please contact the American Legion.

Online Volunteer Signups are now Closed!

Thanks to everyone who signed up pre-burn for a volunteer shift.  There are still tons of opportunities available, just head on over to Participation Station during the burn to see what's available and sign up.  Also check out details on our new and improved volunteer reserved ticket program.

ON SITE PARKING

Onsite Parking Applications are Due May 10th!

PLEASE NOTE
If you're camping with a Theme Camp, and your Theme Camp has requested a vehicle pass for your vehicle through the Theme Camp Placement application, please do not submit an Onsite Parking Request for that vehicle. Onsite Parking requests are only needed for vehicles NOT requested to be parked in placed Theme Camps. 

If you are planning on parking a vehicle anywhere other than the parking lot, be sure to submit an onsite parking application by Friday!

You must pre-register to park on-site. A limited number of passes are available on a first come first served basis, and receipt of a pass is not guaranteed. Only vehicles that contain beds (RVs, etc), or that are needed for medical reasons may park on site.

Do NOT show up planning to park on-site if you haven't pre-registered. RVs are not permitted in the parking lots, so if you show up without a pass you may be sent home!

Pre-registration does not guarantee on-site parking in the event of extremely muddy conditions.

You must be signed in to apply for onsite parking.
