- Preparation: What should I bring?
Thank you for asking the million-dollar question. Colorado Burnal Equinox is an exercise in radical self-sufficiency. Bring EVERYTHING you need to survive in the mountains of Colorado for 48 hours. Tents, heaters, sleeping bags, clothes. Everything but ember producing fires. Make sure you have 3 gallons of water per person, per day.
- What can I buy once I get there?
- 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 CO 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 piney 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.
- 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. There will not be any vendors allowed at CBE.
- 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.
- What about medical emergencies?
We encourage radical self reliance and first aid kits. The Colorado Burnal Equinox has volunteer staffing for the entire event. Minor medical needs can be handled at the Safety 3rd Station, but you should check your kit and your camp’s kit before reaching out to Safety 3rd. 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.
- 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. Bring IT!!
