Iowa/Mid-west Regional Burn October 5th-7th

Post by tattoogoddess » Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:43 pm

Welcome Home!

HearthsOPhyre is a 3 day regional burn located in Central Iowa October 5th - 7th on private land located in Central Iowa that holds to the 10 Principles. This is the second burn that has occurred in Central Iowa, in 2011 it was held in a small park in Norhtern Iowa, for 2012, we are taking the steps to be an officially sanctioned burn. Like Burning Man we will come together to build a city of tents, domes, music, light, dance and of course fire in the spirit of radical self expression. At the end of the event we will dismantle our city and adhere to the principal of "leave no trace", you will never know that we were there and leave it in a better state than when we got there - pack it in and pack it out. There is no vending or commerce of any kind (including promotional materials being handed out!) at HearthsOPhyre, with the only exception being ice sales. Practice "Radical Self Reliance" and be sure to bring what you need to survive for 3 days as leaving the event is not allowed. October can be a bit chilly so be sure to plan accordingly! So grab people you know and once registrations opens, sign up and come be yourself, we promise you will never be a number to us but viewed as one -- heh heh --seriously fun, unique individual. Come on and share the Iowa/Midwest hospitality and come be yourself.

The goal of HearthsOPhyre is to have a great regional burn in Central Iowa and and gather one more time under the stars to unite in a celebration of art and expression.

And of course what event is complete without building something and then burning it the hell down in a spectacular fire???? So yes we will be having an effigy that gets burnt on Saturday night with all of the pre-burn fire performance goodness, so be sure to bring your fire toys and participate. This year the effigy is going to be a giant Sparkle Pony and oh yeah we're gonna dance, yell, spin, and then burn that sucker down!!

HearthsOPhyre this year will be held from October 5th - October 7th, that's right 3 days of art, self expression, and burner goodness.

Stay tuned for theme camp, art, and volunteer information.

Children are allowed at HearthsOphyre when accompanied by their legal guardians.

Ticket pricing will be
$15 for 18+
$5 for 13 - 17 (with legal guardian)
Free for 0 - 12
maladroit- Burning Man is like a second job, except you pay to work there.
