Welcome great explorers of the north! We have some exciting news for you, that we know you’ve all been waiting for – Hyperborea will be on May 19-22 2017 near Tamworth, ON.

This is a camping event in the Canadian Shield where like-minded people can come together to radically express themselves, show off their interactive art and be their better selves. We strive to be radically inclusive and all are welcome, whether you’ve been to Burning Man a hundred times, or have no idea who we are – we’d love to see you and welcome you into our community.

We also support radical self reliance and leave no trace. That means there are no facilities on-site, so bring your own food, water, shelter and supplies for the weekend. If you pack something in, make sure you have space to pack it out with you too.

This is our first regional event on this incredible new site and we’re excited to see what everyone brings out!

Take a look at our amazing site layout to get a feel for how you’ll fit in…

This new event will be run according to the 10 Principles of Burning Man – along with our Canadian flavouring, which makes for this to be a gathering unlike any others you may have been to. If you’re not sure what these principles are, it’s highly recommended to have a read here http://burningman.org/culture/philosophical-center/10-principles/


Hyperborea comes from Greek mythology as the city of plenty past the northern winds. As the first year of Hyperborea, the theme is Breaking Ground, so come join us to explore the subject of making new things, discovering new worlds, and forging into the great unknown.

We a lot of truly amazing art coming to Hyperborea from artists old and new, long-time burners and people that are dipping their toe into our world for the first time. Some highlights include an effigy to celebrate and dance around on Saturday night as it’s burned, and a temple for you to leave your worries, hurt and fears over the weekend to be burned into oblivion on Sunday.
