"Burning Man" Gerlach by akruetzf

Gerlach Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 7 photos

Small city, big festival

Gerlach is a very small village in the middle of nowhere in Nevada. Once a year it grows to be the largest city in NV, of sorts. For about 2 weeks the Burning Man festival is held in the Black Rock desert. Basically it is an arts festival where people build sculptures and wooden structures, for month and on the last day everything is burned to the ground. Including a huge statue of a man, which is the main event - hence the name.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's fun to do the festival.
  • Cons:The dust is all over the place.
  • In a nutshell:Join the burn!
