Summerisle Burn is a four day camping, arts, and culture event based on the 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. You are at once the entertainer and the entertained.
As with all successful burn events, 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.)

Summerisle 2020 will take place at Fort Royale Farm, in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Cellular service with certain carriers on the way to the venue occasionally dropped through the mountains on the way in, 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 March 12, 2020. For 2019 we used BurnerTickets, and were very happy with their service, so we’ll be enjoying them again in 2020. Tickets are $75.00 early bird, $85.00 until May 31, and $100.00 after June 1 and at gate. A ticketing fee will apply to all online sales. All participants must sign a waiver of liability to enter. Minors must be ticketed, 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 filled out by their parent or legal guardian. These forms will be available at gate. Children under 16 will be required to have a ticket but are free.
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. Children under 16 will be required to have a ticket but are free.
