Burning Man is an annual festival held in the high desert wilderness of northern Nevada. Each year around Labor Day, thousands of artists, performers and free spirits converge for a week-long celebration that culminates in the ritual burning of an enormous human effigy. Participants build a temporary community in the Black Rock Desert, and call it Black Rock City. The event has also been described as: "a gathering of people doing weird stuff in the desert".

Burning Man is an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Burning Man is an annual event in the western United States at Black Rock City ? a temporary city erected in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada, approximately north-northeast of Reno. The late summer event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by ten main principles: "radical" inclusion, self-reliance, and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy, and leaving no trace. The event takes its name from its culmination, the symbolic ritual burning of a large wooden effigy that traditionally occurs on the Saturday evening of the event.
