Burning Man experience started during summer solstice 1986, when two friends decided to burn a deconstructed wooden sculpture on a San Francisco beach. It’s grown into an annual convening for participants who create a temporary city in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert (Aug 25 - Sep 2), sharing large-scale art installations and performances, including many centered around fire. Last year, Burning Man drew about 70,000 people as one of the largest influences in the experiential economy.
Saguaro Man (May 1 - 5), whose volunteers will be gathering for a work session during Easter weekend, happens on a much smaller scale, yet it’s a significant part of Burning Man culture.
