Year-round schedule of events

Flipside planning calendar: 2018

The Burning Flipside community is busy year-round, with events happening as we ramp up for Flipside as well as ongoing community events. You can always see what’s coming up in our calender (and even subscribe to that in your own calendar app). For the coming year, the major milestones are as follows:

Ticket window

The window for creating and mailing ticket requests is Jan 7th–28th, 2019: they cannot be created before the start of the window, and they must be postmarked by the end. Requests will be processed in late February with actual ticket e-mail messages going out shortly after that.

Work Weekends

Work weekends are where we prepare the land for Flipside. This includes clearing beaches and paths, removing dead tree limbs, laying roads, etc. These run from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, and you are welcome to camp out overnight.

  • Work Weekend 1: Feb 15–17
  • Work Weekend 2: Mar 15–17
  • Work Weekend 3: Apr 12–14
  • Work Weekend 4: May 3–5

Town Halls

Town Halls are held at the Warehouse twice a year. Town Halls are for major community announcements, learning about volunteering opportunities, and reconnecting with your fellow Flipizens. Fall Town Hall is when we vote on the theme for the upcoming event, and Spring Town Hall is where the effigy design is unveiled.

  • Spring Town Hall: Feb 2
  • Fall Town Hall: Sep 28

Load-in

Load in is when we move Flipside’s infrastructure out to the land. This is always the Saturday before the event starts, and is an all-hands project.

  • Load-in: May 18

Load-out and cleanup

Load-out and cleanup is when we remove Flipside’s infrastructure from the land, along with every trace that the event ever happened. This is ordinarily the Saturday after the event ends, but sometimes is pushed back a week due to weather.

  • Load-out & cleanup: Jun 1

Burning Flipside

Burning Flipside is always on Memorial Day weekend, starting the Thursday before and ending on Memorial Day itself.

  • Burning Flipside 2019: May 23–27, 2019
