Spring Fever Revival, a part of Hot August Nights, is going to be a bit different this year. Instead of a two-day street party, the event has transformed into a Classic Car Poker Run. This Poker Run is all about having some great laughs with your friends, enjoying great food and music while going for a beautiful Saturday cruise. This is, of course, due to COVID concerns.

Spring Fever Revival will be on Saturday, May 22, 2021. Visit the website for an application and details about the Poker Run.

The Burning Man theme for 2021 is The Great Unknown, but it won’t be happening at Black Rock City. For the second year in a row, the Burning Man event out in the Black Rock Desert has been canceled.

This year, you can participate in Burning Man by going to the “Virtual Burn 2021.” The event will feature six Virtual Burning Man Experiences for the Burning Man community (and the Burn-curious) during Virtual Burn Week, August 22 – September 7, 2021. Anybody with an internet connection is invited to participate in the creativity and community, whether you’re dropping in with a VR headset, a desktop computer or a mobile device. This is open to world-wide participation.

You can host your performances, talks, workshops, dance experience, events, or whatever you’d like in the Virtual Burning Man Experiences. There are also opportunities to volunteer. Visit the “Virtual Burn 2021” website to sign up.
