About Burning Man
Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the American Labor Day holiday. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigyon Saturday evening. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.
