WED 11am to 1am
THURS 7am to 1am
FRI 7am to 1am
SAT 7am to 11pm
NO ENTRY after 11pm SAT
CHANGE: The vehicle passes based on number of people in a vehicle never felt right to us, but we did it to reduce wear and tear on the farm in the form of vehicles. This year we are nixing the vehicle passes and have rolled the average into an increased participation fee! We still encourage you to rideshare!
CHANGE: Absolutely no vehicles will be allowed into the back field. Be prepared to load all of your gear into the shuttle and then use wagons to transport gear from the back field shuttle stop to your campsite!
Artists, Theme Camps, Infrastructure
Here are a few important things to know about Barning Arts!
This is a participatory event! You will get out of it what you put into it! Come as you are!
This is a Leave No Trace, carry-in, carry-out event. Each person and camp is responsible for their own trash and recycling. Help us keep the grounds clean & tidy and avoid porta pottie catastrophes!!
MOOP is Matter Out Of Place, which is anything that does not naturally occur in a particular place! Examples: glitter, plastic, banana peels, reusable water bottles
Personal light expression is essential! Lighting your camp area, your person, your art, and all other things!
As a community, we agree to uphold to the Ten Principles of Burning Man and the Eleventh Principle: Enthusiastic Consent!
This site has *no electricity* - we repeat no electricity!
Bring everything you need to survive in the woods - including food and water!
Submitting early is highly encouraged as space is limited!
Participation fees are nonrefundable, but they are transferable! Simply email BarningManNY at gmail dot com and inquire!
Participation forms are one per person! You can fill one out for someone else, but each form accounts for only one participant! Children 12 years and younger do not need a participation form to attend. See Below!
Partici-pants come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and fabrics!
Everyone has an art form! You’re invited to unveil yours.
Where does my money go?
Necessary event expenses include farm rental, portal potties, town permit, event insurance, power, sound, lights, and other fun infrastructure type things that we work to provide at a low cost!
In 2022 the funds that exceeded the cost of the event went towards The Living HARP, A Barning Arts Collective art project that was built for Barning Man and then rebuilt, dismantled, and brought to Burning Man! Fundraising has continued and HARP 2.0 will be returning to Barning Man this year!
In 2023 we launched a micro grant program! We received and funded 11 applications with a total of $1000.
In 2024 we intend to expand the art grant program with a goal of doubling the funding to $2k!
The deadline to apply for an art grant is March 31st 2024! To apply, fill out this form: https://forms.gle/MaWyWs6iaX5zVtfY9!
Put on your partici-pants and hop to it!
Notes on bringing children to Barning Arts!
All humans are welcome to attend! Please be aware of the following:
Humans over 12 years old require a participation form
This event is not geared towards children
There will very likely be nudity
Your young human must be attended to at all times!
The music may be loudest before 9pm
You are choosing to expose your young human to a whole host of unexpected and unpredictable occurrences much of which will likely be super fun for them, but there is no guarantee of appropriateness!
