A temporary community of art, self-expression, music and self-reliance.

The Effigy

The Effigy is the center of our energies at our events. It embodies our volunteerism, our artists, our goals, our aspiations, our hopes for the future and our memories of the past. For many in the community it is a burning symbol of who we are and what we exemplify. The burning of the Effigy brings the entire community together at the heart of the city for a culminating flash of our newfound experiences and friends. Yet it also reminds us that nothing is permanent. It’s a profound experience no matter how you decide to interpret it.

Mutant Vehicles

A Mutant Vehicle is a unique, motorized creation that shows little or no resemblance to their original form, or to any standard street vehicle.



We challenge YOU TO CREATE the art that you want to see and bring it to the event!


Theme Camps

Theme camps create a visually stimulating presence and provide a communal space or other opportunity for interaction.



Join in or create your own - your talent is your gift to the community.
