Dogs & other animals

Dogs are not permitted. If you show up with your dog, you will not be admitted to the event. This restriction is for the well-being and safety of participants and their four-legged friends. Black Rock City is a loud, tumultuous, and scary place for any animal — do not bring them with you.

Hot Springs are off limits

Our Bureau of Land Management permit prohibits participants from using any of the local hot springs during the event. Some are lethally hot! A collaborative team of Earth Guardians and BLM patrol and protect these fragile resources. For more information email
