Saturday, August 10th, 11am-9pm, Civic Center Park
Curious about Burning Man?
Getting ready for your annual sojourn to the Playa?
Want to share in the creativity of Burning Man with your local community?
With two weeks to go, Berkeley Spark is catching fire and we need your help! On August 10th from 11am to 9pm, “burners,” burner-aspirants, artists, performers, dancers, musicians, and DJs will descend on Civic Center park in downtown Berkeley as they weave together the Burning Man culture and the diverse and creative strands of our local community. By supporting our Kickstarter project “Berkeley Spark – Bringing Burning Man to Berkeley” we can make this new festival possible. All donations will support the artists and musicians and their creative efforts.
If you are unable to make a monetary donation, please consider being a volunteer.
Berkeley Spark is an East Bay event connecting the greater Berkeley community and surrounding communities with its ever-evolving arts community.
Inspired by that annual pilgrimage to the Nevada desert, Berkeley Spark is a day-long festival of art, music, dance, acro yoga, and interactive experiences led by local burners and artful East Bay visionaries. Come enjoy the weaving together of Playa culture and the diverse strands of our local community, where the spirit of collaboration and creativity is embraced.
Parking is limited – please take public transportation, walk, or bike.
Looking for an after-hours gathering? Stop into one of Berkeley’s late-night establishments: Jupiter, Triple Rock Brewery, BUILD Pizzeria, Phil’s Sliders and Revival Bar + Kitchen.
