Nestled deep in the knobs of Kentucky sits one of the best kept secrets of the South. Welcome to Singe City! We are a small intimate burner community that follows the 10 Principles with a twist of southern hospitality. For the last 14 years, Reclaimation has welcomed burners from near and far to come sit a spell and experience, as well as participate in, hillbilly ingenuity. One visit to this down-home regional and you will want to start marking the 2nd weekend in May as the “Burns Family Reunion” on your calendar for years to come!
Reclaimation, yes spelled as such, gets its name from the practices that started it all. One of the core tenants of the burn is to use “reclaimed” wood from old barns, etc. as much as possible to build the effigy and temple As the years have progressed, reclaimed wood has been harder to come by (not to mention all ya damn hippies decorating your houses with reclaimed barn wood … so hot right now), so we have bought some materials the past couple of years .
Hillbillies are strong, resilient, and have survived throughout the ages on their craft and ingenuity. Reclaimation began in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky, and we honor the Hillbillies throughout the world for their grit and determination. As we strive to live the 10 Principles and keep the spirit of Burning Man alive, we look at how we can not only better the burner community, but our everyday default lives as well. While we are here on the topic of principles, we would like to point out the official unofficial principle that we adhere to. For poops and giggles lets call it “Principle 0” or the foundation for all the others out there. CONSENT! Consent is not a new idea, just one that has finally been given its time to shine. Here at HBR we love consent and are more than happy to teach anyone and everyone about it
Come help us build Singe City, form a community where the inhabitants take care of each other, and then tear it down and leave the land without a trace. That’s what we do. Reclaimation is entirely volunteer run and its very existence depends on YOU! That’s right…YOU make the event…YOU are the event.
IF YOU ARE PURCHASING CHILD TICKETS
Due to limitations in our new ticketing system, adult tickets must be purchased in one transaction, then you have to come back and purchase child tickets in a seperate transaction. We hope to have this fixed soon.
