Hyperborea is a camping, arts and cultural event in the Canadian Shield where like-minded people come together to radically express ourselves, share our art and become our best selves.
The organizers of Hyperborea do not curate music or activities. We book the field, rent porta potties, coordinate logistics and volunteers, approve theme camps and art projects. All of the music and other activities are provided by participants. The art, dance, costumes and culture that make up Hyperborea are determined and created by the community itself, and make this event unlike any other.
We strive to be radically inclusive. All are welcome, whether you’ve been to Burning Man ten times, or have no idea what it is– you’re welcome in our community.
We support radical self-reliance and leave no trace, there are no facilities on-site. Come prepared! Bring your own food, water, shelter and supplies for the weekend. However, If you bring something in, make sure you have space to bring it out with you.
This event is run in accordance with the 10 Principles of Burning Man – with a Canadian flare, that makes this a gathering unique.
