CBE FAQ

If you have a question about the event, it may be answered here. If it’s not, please contact us at Info@DenverBurners.org.

  1. How much is a ticket for my child?
    Children 12 and under accompanied by a parent will be admitted for free. Children between 13-18 require full-price tickets. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over 21 years of age.
  2. Will I be able to buy tickets at the gate?
    Tickets will NOT be available at the box office/gate of the event. Plan ahead and purchase your tickets in advance.
  3. Will I be able to leave and return to the event?
    While leaving Denver BRC during the event and returning to the real world will probably be the last thing on your mind, in and outs are allowed.  If you leave without a wristband and a ticket, you will not be able to return without paying full price for a ticket again.
  4. Does the event sell out, or have a limit in size?
    The event has indeed sold out in the past and is limited to venue capacity. 
  5. Where does my ticket money go?
    Our ticket prices are on par with other 12 hour events and small-medium-scale event prices. Here’s where your money goes!
  6. Preparation: What should I bring?
    Thank you for asking the million-dollar question. While Colorado Burnal Equinox is an exercise in radical self-sufficiency, some of the things you might bring might not be allowed per the venue. For more information, check out the bottom of the CBE page
  7. What can I buy once I get there?
    Colorado Burnal Equinox will take place in a venue which has a full liquor license. You can bring your empty water bottle, but will need to leave your flask at home. You will most likely be frisked at the door.
    There will be food vendors on site and within our event perimeter. This is different from last time, so yes…you will be able to get some food while holding your adult beverage you purchased from the bar inside.  
  8. What can I expect from the weather?
    In Colorado, there is a saying: if you don’t like the weather, stick around for five minutes and it will change.
    Only one thing is completely predictable about the weather in the Denver BRC: Unpredictability.
    Be prepared for volatile extremes, and ready for anything and everything. Come with ample shade producing shelter, warm clothes, and lots of water. Temperatures by night may go well below freezing.
    Snow storms in March arise with breathtaking swiftness, transforming the urban playa into a gigantic snow globe in a matter of moments.
    Winds are often 20-30 mph under normal conditions, and winds from 40-70mph can be felt during a storm. You are advised to secure your shade structure and loose items in preparation for this possibility
    While the weather in mid-March is usually warm, it can be downright arctic. When it comes to the weather at Colorado Burnal Equinox, it’s much better to be over-prepared.
  9. I have some handmade crafts that I’d like to sell in order to cover my travel costs. Where can I set this up?
    Colorado Burnal Equinox, like Burning Man, has survived and flourished through sharing, trading and the giving of the gift of yourself. Other than the venue and food vendors, there will not be any other vendors allowed at CBE.
  10. What is the policy on taking pictures?
    All individuals wishing to shoot still or motion pictures at CBE and distribute that imagery publicly, regardless of commercial intent, are required to have their projects reviewed and approved prior to coming to Denver BRC, sign a professional use contract in accordance with Burning Man’s media policies, and have their cameras tagged. These steps are designed to protect the privacy of participants and artists alike. If you are considering filming or videotaping for professional purposes, or if you wish to share your images beyond friends and family, regardless of your intent to make money from your images, you MUST have a commercial agreement on file with the Media Team prior to your arrival on site. Commercial use of images taken at Burning Man without permission is subject to cunning legal action. This includes amateurs and professionals who capture images.  You are asked to gain consent from all participants within the shots.
  11. What about medical emergencies?
    We encourage radical self reliance and first aid kits. However, Colorado Burnal Equinox is a challenging event in a harsh urban location, and medical needs do arise. The Colorado Burnal Equinox has volunteer staffing for the entire event. Minor medical needs can be handled at the Safety 3rd Station. If there is a serious medical emergency, and the participant cannot be moved, contact a Ranger for assistance. Ambulances and helicopter transportation to the hospitals in Denver are available, if needed.
  12. Can I show my art or attend if I’ve never been to Burning Man?
    Absolutely! This event is about community: having it, building it, keeping it. Once available, check out the Art Placement Form for more information and to submit your art for placement.
  13. What time can I set up my art installation in the outside area?
    You are welcome to come in to set up as early as 8 a.m., but the area will not be supervised until 10 a.m. Plan to stay with your art, or leave any items at your own risk until then.
  14. I want to help – what can I do?
    Fantastic! Just head over to the Burnal Equinox Page and fill out the volunteer form. We’ll get back to you with more information about your shift(s) as well as your discounted volunteer ticket.
