It’s starting to feel like a holiday is coming up… wait a second, it is! AfterBurn 2022 starts in a little over a week and we’re absolutely ready for it. The weather has chilled nicely and all we can think about is camping with all of you lovely people. And Martians. And discos.

Gate Hours and Reminders
As you may remember from my last blurb, gate is going paperless. That means waivers are electronic and available for you to review and sign prior to arriving at gate. In fact, we really, really want you to get this taken care of prior to getting here. If you did not complete your waiver after printing your tickets, please go to Waiver Forever ASAP, before Monday, October 31, 2022. Tickets can be scanned from your phone, too.

Gate hours are as follows:

Thursday November 3rd, 2022 – Early Entry only – Open 12 PM to 10 PM with pre-approval only. Early entry will be available only to those participants with prior approval for access; your name MUST BE on the list at gate.

Saturday, November 5th, 2022 – Open: 9 AM – 7 PM; Mobile gate opens 3 PM – 7 PM; all gates close at 7 PM for “campfire.” ABSOLUTELY NO ENTRY after 7PM. NO Movement of any vehicles until AFTER effigy ignition, then Exodus only.

Volunteer Brunch

As a way to say thank you to all of you fine folks who took the time to volunteer to make this event a success, we have one of the finest chefs around putting together a volunteer brunch. The magic happens on Sunday, November 6, at a time that will be confirmed at the info booth on site.

What Where When Guide

Are you planning a super cool event at AfterBurn 2022? Maybe you’re serving wine and cheese, or you’re offering tarot readings?
