Burning Flipside will be held over Memorial Day Weekend, May 23–27, 2019, near the campgrounds of Apache Pass River Theatre, on the private grounds north of the San Gabriel River, just outside the town of San Gabriel, TX.
The Gateway Burn is an annual event which celebrates the Gateway Burners community. In the spirit of Burning Man, attendees gather and camp together for four days to bring art, creativity, music, workshops, community activities, education, etc. and then end the weekend with an effigy burn (if you’re not familiar what what an effigy burn is, imagine an 18-25 foot sculpture representing the event theme that is set on fire and burned to the ground in a symbolic tradition).
