Art & Theme-Camp Registration Now Open

Bringing an art project, art car, or theme camp to Flipside this year? Register it! Have an event that you want to make sure ends up on the schedule? Register that too!

Work Weekends!

Work Weekends are scheduled to make sure everything is ready for Burning Flipside. We gather downed tree branches, clean up trails, and give the land some love before Pyropolis takes shape. There’s plenty of work for folks of all skills levels. If you want to learn to do something you’ve not done before, we’ll help you learn how. The first WW focused on clearing downed trees and limbs. Later in the Spring, we start working on poison ivy removal and fire ant eradication.

Let us know if you are coming!
