What is BURNOUT?

BurnOut is the official post-Burning Man Decompression event for Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas. The goal for this event is to give provide an opportunity for local burners to host art, build community, inspire creativity, perform and enjoy music, and create memories as they return from the Playa / decompress from the Burning Man season (or consider attending next year!). BurnOut is an officially sanctioned as a post-Burning Man decompression event, gives burners in the Portland area an opportunity to celebrate, network, and build connections with other like-minded people in our region after they return from the Nevada event.
