Today you’ll find out more about events including: Burning Man/Crubible Fire Arts Foundation, Spaghetti Western/Kosshkingdom, Awe to Action Conference, Dream Circus, LA regional precompression, other things in Philly, LA and on the East Coast.



The Maid Marian-Jack Rabbit has come out of seclusion to let everyone know about some fun, fabulous and important upcoming events. This is your ALL EVENTS JRS. I’m MOST excited about the FIRE ARTS FESTIVAL which is being presented by Burning Man and the Crucible crucible.org from Wednesday, July 7 to Sunday, July 11. It’s a “holy-shit” kind of event/s, with Thursday 7/6 night being a gala fundraiser (see below) for the Black Rock Arts Foundation blackrockarts.org and the Crucible. If you thought you might make a trip to SF this summer, this is the weekend to do it. BUT… before I tell you more about that event…

First all: a friendly reminder. If you have a theme camp fundraiser, please use the Burning Man year-round calendar. The JRS has a world-wide audience, and we just isn’t able to post all the event requests we receive.



Bay Area folks, subscribe to the sanfrancisco-announce list via: sanfrancisco-announce-subscribe where we DO post Bay Area events including Theme Camp fundraisers and other miscellaneous events as suits our whim. Thanks to the ever-lovin’ Bex for sitting at the helm of this announce list.


For instance, if I was looking for something to do this weekend (June 25-27) A quick visit to the Burning Man web site’s Year Round Calendar (see above URL) would yield info on events in Los Angeles with a Dream Circus, or in Philly, or in my favorite city San Francisco with this Saturday’s Theme Camp fundraiser with Spaghetti Western and Kooshkingdom kooshkingdom.com which will have DJs from Space Lounge and Space Cowboys… and speaking of Space Cowboys… if you were out at the Temple of Gravity on Thursday night last year… when their mobile sound system came by… ah… Anyway, I’ve included some basic info on this last one below.

JULY 2-4

NO problem finding something to do over July 4th weekend either! Those of you on the volunteer-announce@ list and the dpw-announce@ already know about the big work weekend for the Project.

Cal. folks have a Regional Pre-Compression event as a July 4th option la-burningman.com/burn-4th-info.htm with some info below.
