POrtalBurn is an event like nothing you have experienced. Each year, we design and set up a temporary community where everyone is a participant. There are no vendors; nothing can be bought or sold. Items are freely gifted. The entire event is run by volunteers. Everyone, from Board Members and Organizers to Leads, Medics, and Rangers is volunteering, because POrtalBurn belongs to them, and you…
Here you will find the wild, the wonderful, the magical…a world of unbridled creativity and self-expression through music, art, performances, gatherings, food, drink and participatory events. Join us in creating this world…
POrtalBurn is the Burning Man sanctioned Upstate New York Regional Burn experience dedicated to the principles of inclusion, gifting, decommodification, self-reliance, self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy.
This years event will take place at a location called Hummingbird Hill in Almond, NY. It's a beautiful site where we have held POrtal Burn several times in past years. It has an open field, a swimming hole, and ample grounds suitable for camping. There is an indoor pavilion with a deck over looking the site and pond. The pond is swimmable! Our website FAQ's will be updated as new information unfolds.
