Welcome unSCruz Participants!
Join us as we bring the spirit of Burning Man to Santa Cruz County through radical self expression and radical inclusion. Get ready for three fun-filled DAYS of art, performance, music, costuming, DJs, mutant vehicles and more! This is a Rain or Shine event, so come prepared with your radical self-reliance.
This event is driven by what YOU bring to it: volunteering, performing, theme camps, etc. unSCruz is an official Burning Man Regional Event. This means we are endorsed by Burning Man, but we receive NO money from them. We are NON-commercial in every way; we abide by the 10 principles. Everyone is a volunteer; no one is paid a penny.
It has also been important to us to keep our prices reasonable. The event barely sustains itself on a very SMALL budget. Therefore, participating at unSCruz does not automatically equate to getting a free ticket. Had we given free tickets to every performer, artist, theme camp & volunteer, unSCruz would NOT exist.
Vehicle Passes are for trailers, RVs and other camping vehicles. All other vehicles do NOT need a pass, and should be parked in the nearby parking lot. PLEASE NOTE: There will be shuttles to help you bring your camping gear inside. Vehicles without passes will remain in the parking lot which is VERY NEARBY, less than 100 yards away. Vehicle passes are only for people who want/need to have their vehicle inside the event. PLEASE don't panic if you don't get one; your car will be less than 100 yards from the interior. You can return to your car at anytime.
