COVID update (4/2/2020):

Saguaro Man will be October 14-18, 2020 on our new land in Cochise County. Dates are subject to change based on official guidance around our ongoing public health crisis. Assuming we’re a go, this will be a full Saguaro Man experience. This will not be AZ Decompression. We’re aiming for 800 participants, big art, and bigger shenanigans – as long as public health officials deem it safe.


Saguaro Man is an annual collaborative celebration of large scale art, music, performance art, and interactive participation. This event is created by AZ Burners for AZ Burners to bring the culture of Burning Man and Black Rock City to the great state of Arizona. 

We’re excited for you to join us! Before you head out to Saguaro Man, please familiarize yourself with the 10 Principles and Code of Conduct.

10 Principles.

Don’t come to Saguaro Man until you read the 10 Principles. Seriously. You won’t get past gate (or survive the event) unless you know these. See the 10 Principles.

Consent and Code of Conduct.

We’re going to have a blast but we expect you to behave as a human. We take consent very seriously. Yes means yes. Anything else means no. Read the code of conduct.

Our theme for 2020 is Dream Within a Dream. In the threshold of consciousness, is all of life an illusion, or is it what we experience as reality yet another dream we can wake from? What can our sleep dreams tell us about reality? What are your waking dreams and aspirations and how do they fit within the collective dream of the larger culture?

Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream

Edgar Allan Poe
