WHAT IS PLAYA DEL FUEGO?
Playa del Fuego (PDF) is the Mid-Atlantic’s oldest Regional Burning Man Event. Playa del Fuego is a community-driven, temporary experiment in collaborative community building - featuring interactive and experiential art and music, a gifting economy, and striving to Leaves No Trace. This temporary community is created by volunteers working together utilizing the Ten Principles of Burning Man as a guide. There are no spectators at Playa del Fuego; everyone collaborates in some way to create the event. It's a place for radical self-expression, acceptance, inclusivity, and respect.
PdF began in 1998 when 20 or so east coast residents who had been to Burning Man in the Nevada desert wanted to get together a little closer to home to celebrate the spirit of the event. They joined together on the beach of Assateague Island on Maryland's coast for a weekend and built and burned the first PdF effigy. Today, PdF honors its Assateague Island roots by burning an effigy of a Pony every PdF.
