Things You Did Not Know You Would Need at Burning Man

This is a list of items you may not know you need to bring to Burning Man. It is by no means a complete list. This list is just for items that make survival at the event a little more civilized.

This list is not intended to be a complete list of all you need for Burning Man. Note that it makes no mention of food, for example. Remember that nothing is for sale at Burning Man-- except for coffee, tea, and ice at the Center Camp. Whatever you want at Burning Man is what you have to bring.

We suggest bringing at least two of everything. In the heat of the day, it is very aggravating trying to find stuff that someone else did not put away or that someone took somewhere, especially if you are looking in your 100° tent or car. Save yourself the aggravation and have a back up or two for all items.

Other people have lists of stuff to bring. Browse through these, as you may have an epiphany.

The 3M Company (formerly Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing) has a single Web page full of products which fill several of our needs: products for cracked heels, cracked skin, foot cream, skin cleansers, liquid bandages, hand sanitizers, and more. Drop by their NexCare Products page and see if anything applies to your needs.

For individual packets of personal care products, aspirins, even food, see Miminus.

We have pages on our Table of Contents page at
which give information for first time participants, second time participants, and old time participants. In addition to guides on participating, the Table of Contents has links to shade and shelter, last minute shopping in Reno, tall tales from Black Rock, and photographs from 1996 through the latest Burn.

This is not the official Burning Man site. That Web site is located at Burning Man.
The Burning Man Archives contain every Web site for the Burning Man known to Man. Please browse that site as well.
