Why Burning Girl?


Burning Girl is an annual party celebrating and respecting the spiritual land at Rancho Rico. We invite creative guests, who through acts of giving and artistic expression, share music, film, dance, photography, visual arts, and theme camps. The party culminates in a climactic burn of a 11 foot sculpture on the 4th of July weekend.

Gifting is the act of giving something (material or otherwise) to another person without any expectation of receiving something in return.
Everyone should think of something they can contribute from their camp as a "Gift". It can be material, entertainment, or physical. This will get people roving to different areas of the ranch and make everyone feel welcome in all the camps and part of the Burning Girl community.

Theme Camps
A campsite which artistically presents an idea or concept and is designed to be interactive with participants.
Everyone can create a theme for their camp. They can incorporate this theme into their camp gift, art car, or interactive installation , and costumes.

Art Cars
Art cars are unique, motorized creations that may include forms such as furniture, shopping carts, boats, bikes, animals, or just about anything imagininable.
We would like to encourage people to put together an art car or bike for their theme camp to cruise the esplinade during the weekend and join in the parade.  We will have our Church of Burning Girl art car out in full regalia, and the Twisted Christmas Mardi Gras truck.

Camp Registration 
  • Registration for every participant will be required this year.
  • A donation page has been created with a requested donation amount of 30.00 person.
  • Individual admission numbers will be assigned after registrants have processed through the donation site.
  • This number will access entrance through the front gate. 
  • From there you will be directed to the greeter tent for your wristband.
  • Everyone at the party will need to wear a wristband through out the event. This includes every child. So if you are bringing a family of five, then you will need to register all five, and each one will have their own admission number.
