CANCELEDBurning Kouch Beach Camping Trip 2017

Organized by Drew Wolin

  • Sep 15, 2017, 5:00 PM — Sep 17, 2017, 11:00 AM (EDT)
  • New York, NY, USA
  • This event is over.

I deeply regret to inform everyone that Burning Kouch 2017 is canceled.

The town of Southold (of which Orient is a hamlet) filed a restraining order against us. They do not want us holding this event there. We tried to fight it. We really did. The hurdles are significant.

Do NOT publicly speak ill of, or harass, the town. It won't help matters.

Take a moment to digest.

Now, there are still hundreds of us, now free, looking to have fun this weekend. So… let's have fun this weekend.

If anybody has suggestions or connections for a good back up plan, let me know. I've contacted House of Yes and am searching for nearby campgrounds that may be a good fit.

Thank you all for understanding, I'm so sorry it had to come down to this, and let's work together to minimize the impact of the cancellation.

Thank you all again for understanding,

    And we are targeting this new event to be in the spring, and then again in the fall. Probably the first weekend of May. There is a lot up in the air, but we feel we have a great crowd and it's worth the work. There are so many festivals out there, and we want to create something that is a little different. that is more about community and nature and physical activities (hiking, sports, etc). Venue is the hardest part, so that's what we'll do this winter, find several options so we always have a backup plan. There will likely be a cost per person, but we'll do everything to keep it very minimal so everyone can afford it.
