Burning Man is an annual festival that draws tens of thousands of people to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, where they build a gathering place known as Black Rock City. The Burning Man Project, which organizes the event, describes it as “a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.”

Many iconic steampunk art projects were first seen at Burning Man, and many steampunk fans were first exposed to the genre at the festival.
