BAY AREA SPECIAL EVENTS
Long after the playa fires have died, the flame burns on inside us all. Special events year-round bring burners together to fan that flame in the same spirit of creativity, eccentricity, and community. The San Francisco Bay Area is a hotbed of burner activity, and the events produced by Burning Man are just the spark igniting the fire.

While preparing for the playa, take a moment to plan how your art will make it to a local Decom or other regional event. That's right! Take your art on the road and keep the fires burning year-round - pARTicipate!
For the latest news about major burner happenings in the SF area, we invite you to join our SF Announce List by filling out a volunteer questionnaire. You might also consider the Squid List for a broad range of burner-inspired and non-burner events. To communicate burner events worldwide, our calendars offer a community resource. Also, connect with your regional contact (many have active discussion or announce lists) or visit the appropriate regional bulletin board on the Eplaya.
Pre-Compression and Decompression are just two ways the Burning Man organization is bringing the Black Rock to the Bay year-round. Everyone's invited, so come participate in the fun! To volunteer or support an event with art, performance, or other creative/logistical resources, please email flambe(at)burningman.com.
There will also be a number of workshops and smaller events throughout the year. Subscribe to sanfrancisco-announce-subscribe(at)burningman.com to find out about those events as they are scheduled
