What is L'OsstidBurn?


L’OsstidBurn is Montreal’s regional burn. It’s a participatory event and collective experience that takes place October 7-11th 2021. It’s 90 minutes by car from Montreal, in the Eastern Townships.

At L’OsstidBurn, there is no main stage or paid staff. The event organizing team, theme camp organizers, artists, Rangers and LNT (Leave No Trace) team are all volunteers and members of the community. Everyone who comes to L’OsstidBurn is expected to help out beyond their own camp and their art project. You can choose to volunteer before, during and/or after the event … or throughout the year!

► We are all responsible for what this event is going to be! We do not know what will happen at L’OsstidBurn  — that’s the beauty of the event and the community that creates it.

► We respect Burning Man’s 10 principles.

► At L’OsstidBurn, we co-create a gift economy. There is no money exchanged on site during the event. No sale of goods will be allowed on the site.

► We seek to inspire you and awaken your senses and your imagination! Whether it’s through art installations, performances, sculptures, theme camps, costumes or interactive art, we strongly encourage free expression and creativity — whatever that means to you.

► Everyone contributes, and everyone buys their ticket — even the people who have volunteered throughout the year to make OsstidBurn happen.

► L’OsstidBurn is a Leave No Trace event. Everything you bring and consume on site must leave with you when you leave. Everyone is responsible for their own waste. We must leave the place as we found it.
