Summerisle 2020 — details coming — Somewhere awesome June 2020

Summerisle is inspired by the Ten Principles of Burning Man but is not affiliated with Burning Man Project or the Burning Man Regional Network.

Summerisle Burn is a four day camping event based on the culture and principles of Burning Man. Summerisle is a collaborative gathering of community organized and fueled by volunteers. It is an interactive experience that is everything you choose to make it.

As with all successful regional burns, Summerisle embraces the Ten Principles, and models itself on their guidance. Thus, for example, we incorporate the principles of Leave No Trace (there are no trash cans, so you’ll have to pick up after yourself and pack your trash out with you), Decommodification (no buying or selling of private goods, and many choose to obscure or creatively alter any visible brands on trucks, tents and clothing), and Radical Self Reliance (there are no vendors, so you’ll have to bring enough food, water, and whatever else you need to survive for four days.)

Join us year round in our facebook group.

In 2019 Summerisle Burn took place at Fort Royale Farm, in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Cellular service with certain carriers on the way to the venue may occasionally drop through the mountains, but it’s excellent on site.  Be prepared with directions before heading to Fort Royale.

You must have purchased a ticket and present a valid government identification at gate to attend Summerisle. Tickets will be available for 2020 early in 2020. For 2019 we used BurnerTickets, and were very happy with their service.  2019 tickets were $74.69 in advance and after June 1st for $100.00.  All participants must sign a waiver of liability to enter. Minors must be accompanied by their legal guardian or have a signed waiver from their guardian, as well as a minor registration form with emergency contact information fill out by their parent or legal guardian.

Finally, Summerisle is an all-ages event. Children under 18 are not required to have an ID, however, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at gate.  Any child or minor who arrives at gate without a registered guardian will be turned away.
