Burning Man 2013 Hooping Events Calendar

Burning Man 2013 Every year hoopers from all over the world make their way to the most uninhabitable place in the middle of nowhere to meet, greet, teach, trade, party, spin and play. Where are they going? Burning Man, of course. A sold out crowd of potentially 68,000 this year are currently figuring out what they are going to pack and just how they are going to be getting to Black Rock City, Nevada, USA, for what is easily the largest conglomeration of hoopers annually anywhere in the world. As Hoopin’ Annie of World Hoop Day once said, “The event starts one week before Labor Day and ends with burned art installations, happiness, a new sense of self and playa-fied everything.” Are you excited? We certainly are.

And what is on the calendar for hoopers at Burning Man 2013? Plenty. From Hoopcamp’s Magical Midnight Mayhem LED hoopjam coming to the playa for the first time to the annual Spin Cycle camp hoop jam and more. For a complete run down on everything hooping related on the playa this year check the calendar below – and if you know of something taking place that didn’t make it into our event listings please be sure to add it so we can all know about it.
