The Event

Lakes of Fire

Lakes of Fire is the Great Lakes Region’s official Burning Man Regional Event, and is conducted in accordance with the 10 Principles.

Come join us for a yearly collaborative celebration of art and community, steeped in friendship, fire, and wonder. This community event will is both for you and by you – your creativity, your art, and your relentless enthusiasm fuel a life-altering week that many consider “coming home”.

Your Lucky Lake home hosts theme camps as well as open camping; however you join us, you’ll find music, art, and fiery fun – a creative carnival that is built, destroyed, and carefully wiped clean of the earth just once a year.

Our home includes a freshwater, no-wake, no gas motor lake with over a mile of shoreline with catch and release fishing.  There are no lifeguards – you swim at your own risk.

LAKES OF FIRE 2023: Garden of Wonder!

Every year, the Lakes of Fire community chooses a theme to rally around – a central focus that many people use when deciding on the art they will bring, the costumes they will create to express themselves, and the art cars they will design.
