Play in Reno Before You Play on the Playa

Play in Reno Before You Play on the Playa

Before you head to the Black Rock Desert to play on the playa, make a pit stop and play in Reno! Here are some Pre Burning Man Events in the Reno Sparks area to help you get ready for Black Rock City.

Morris Burner Hostel Burn Month

Morris Burner Hostel is an eclectic space, representative of burner culture. Through the month of August, Morris Burner Hostel is presenting Burn Month, a month full of events before the burn. If you need to make some last minute preparations before heading to Black Rock City, you’re in luck, because they have something going on every day leading up to the burn!

Gift Making – Since no money is exchanged in Black Rock City, gifts are a common currency. If you’re short on gifts to exchange out on the playa, they can help you with that.

Costuming – No outfit is too crazy out on the playa and you’ll want to keep your feet protected! Learn how to make boot covers, tie dye, and some other last minute costuming fixes.

Burner Education Sessions – Whether you’re new to Black Rock City or have called it home before, attend a Burner Education Session at the Morris Burner Hostel every Wednesday leading up to the burn.

775 Shufflers and Drum Circle –  If you happen to be heading to the burn later in the week, get ready by watching the 775 Shufflers on August 28, or attend the Drum Circle and Belly Dance Jam on August 29.

Get in the Burning Man spirit with Reno Street Food.

Reno-Sparks Open Streets Cyclovia

If you haven’t already read how to prepare for the burn, getting around on the playa is a lot easier with two wheels! Reno Bike Project is a must for many burners to gear up for a week on the playa. On August 20, Reno-Sparks Open Streets is bringing the Cyclovia movement to Sparks. The event will feature food vendors, yoga classes, dance sessions, and health tips. Explore the vehicle-free streets of Sparks by foot or bike while learning the value of going green, just in time for Burning Man!
