Spring Retreat: A Queerburners Campout Memorial Day Weeekend

May 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm May 29, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

Still looking for an easy and chill Memorial Weekend getaway specifically for LGBTQIA+ people from all over Northern California? Then bring your camping gear and some friends to East Lake Reservoir for a three-night spring campout, organized by Starduster, a fellow Billy and the events director for Queerburners, a 501(c)(3) nonpofit organization.

There will be folks from some of the gayest theme camps at Burning Man and other similarly-oriented, queer civic and social groups from the Bay Area and beyond. Think swimming, boating, and hammock-swinging by day and picnic table dining and campfire singalongs by night. Workshops, group activities, variety shows, etc are welcome! This event will take whatever form the community shapes it into! Blinky lights, radical couture, and bikes? Yes! Children and dogs? Bring ’em! Pulsing music and intense partying? Hey, if that’s your happy place then bring it on and we all can go there, too (until 10pm when quiet hours kick in)!

Low-cost tickets are available and No One Turned Away For Lack Of Funds! Ridesharing is encouraged. All campsites are on flat land and accessible. Get your tickets today on Eventbrite!
