JRS Volume #6; Issue #21


Jack Rabbit Speaks from the middle of a four-day work week, after a wonderful holiday weekend with the ones we love… ahhh!

Funny thing: we bunnies have noticed that the single biggest question we get to jackrabbitspeaks(at)burningman(dot)com has got to be “How can I connect with other burners in my area?” I know we tell you this this every week, but it bears repeating: visit http://www.burningman.com/blackrockcity_yearround/contacts/regional_contacts.html and click on your region to find out the news and happenings for your nearest group of local burners. Imagine a life where you never have to go “home” from Burning Man, because you take Burning Man home with you! Now, you’ll find calendars for every region… click to see more!!

Below, you’ll find Ticket Updates, information on the Burning Man Remembrance Plaque, and Caravan Info for Canadians. Also, there are regional events and theme camp fundraisers in the Midwest, Seattle, Portland, and LA. Enjoy!


“Party on till dawn daylight! Loose your keys and try to find… The silver gleam of keys do fade… as dust blows on, so there you stay!”

Remembrance Plaque For Burners Lost

Each year, Burning Man creates a plaque to commemorate members of the community who have passed away. If you have lost a loved one or friend and would like to add their name to the plaque, please email Bex at bex(at)burningman(dot)com. Write the name exactly as you would like to see it appear.

Look for the completed plaque at the base of the Man from Monday through Friday. It will be raised to the right leg and burn with him on Saturday night.
