2020 is postponed, but we have a theme!

Join us for a weekend of Art, Community, and Fire!
Embracing the 10 Principles of Burning Man.
Postponed – New dates TBD
Please see our COVID-19 Statement.
Our theme this year will be ILLUMINATE.

Implying the action of awakening or conscious knowledge, it is representative of our Burn culture of burning art. In consideration of where we are as an event and regional group,we bring the word to mind in the beholder; this is also a magical ceremony to help us find our path, to strengthen bonds with our community brothers and sisters who will be in volunteer & successor roles in the future, to help us use our wealth of knowledge and experience to properly guide our community through the coming rapid growth years. 

And most of all, to light the way out of these strange, dark times in which we suddenly find ourselves.

Tickets, Participate, and other pages will be updated as we go.
Check back often, and sign up for our newsletter, the ‘Roadrunner Speaks,’ here.

All our Gratitude!

Panel 1

What is SunBurn?

SunBurn is New Mexico’s officially-sanctioned regional Burning Man event. SunBurn is a cultural movement based on the 10 principles of Burning Man and a quest to experiment our ideas within community.  This event is a temporary village created by its participants in the experiment of radical expression and doocracy.

Meaning, this is your chance to express yourself!

SunBurners build themed camps with friends and invite other burners to participate in them during the event.  SunBurners provide music and art because they love to share it. Now you can be the act and the entertainment you want to see, because what happens here is up to everyone! Leave your money at home because we are a gift economy. Gift what you have to share, and you will always find what you need.

We collaborate.

We are inclusive, creative, connective, and activated.

Lastly, SunBurn is a Leave No Trace event, so clean up after yourself so someone else doesn’t have too.

Sunburn continues to be a hard-won expression of creative and loving New Mexicans and our friends from afar. We welcome all players, new and old, to enjoy together what we call “the burn.”
