Who is Burning Woman Festival for?
Burning Woman is a festival for all women aged 12 and beyond. You are welcome to bring babes in arms to the festival, however we ask that you respect other women’s experience should the baby become unsettled. The festival does not have activities to cater for young children.
Our vision is for a weekend of sisterhood! We welcome mothers, grandmothers, daughters, friends, sisters, and aunties to come join us as we gather to embrace and ignite the of power of Woman. Together we will co-create a weekend of adventure, the arts, wild spirit, nature, fun and love as we deepen our connections to the Earth and each other. We will leave feeling valued, nourished, empowered and inspired!
Burning Woman Festival is about healing our connection to the Divine Feminine whilst respecting and honouring the Divine Masculine.
Burning Woman does not discriminate against race, religion, sexual orientation, age or creed. We welcome women from the BIPOC community and celebrate this diversity with workshop hosts and performers as we share and value the diversity of our gifts, talents, life experiences.
If you identify as a woman and wish to share and contribute to this festival, then you are welcome.
The festival is a safe space for all attending, and we will not tolerate any form of hateful speech or behaviour.
The festival site and facilities is suitable for non-able bodied woman and we have a team of fabulous volunteers to support your experience. You are welcome to bring along a friend to support you too and will be provide a complimentary ticket for them.
Please note, this event is limited to Women participants and attendees. However, at varying times, there may be male contractors and facilitators onsite supporting the festival.
