Gateway Burners

Tickets SOLD OUT!!!

Gateway Burn is entirely volunteer supported. Without volunteers, our event can not grow as quickly as we might like. To this end, in 2017 we have lowered the number of available tickets to 300. This is 200 fewer than in 2016, when low volunteer turnout put many of your hard working Leads in dire straits.

Never Fear! Volunteer signups are available NOW for your convenience and pre-planning pleasure. We will be monitoring the stats of these sign ups and they are your “ticket” to more tickets! We are looking for 75% capacity of volunteer shifts for Rangers and Medics, and 50% overall of volunteer slots filled, at which point we will release more tickets! We’ve made the signups available NOW so you can begin planning your volunteer time. See the EVENT DESCRIPTION for a list of links to the volunteer sheets.

Are you in a theme camp? Organize your participants for a MOOP sweep with the Earth Guardians, a shift at Parking, or a morning hugging newcomers at Greeters. The possibilities are endless – If you aren’t sure what you’d like to do, email to get guidance. Gateway Burn can’t happen without your enthusiastic participation. We encourage and implore you to get involved and find your place in the operation of our event.


Tickets Are On Sale… From Time to Time!

Starting NOW, tickets to Gateway Burn 2017 ARE AVAILABLE! That’s right, our dear friends at BurnerTickets have worked with us to get ticket sales open from now until the last week of May.

This may be the longest ticket window ever! So get your ticket now, or start saving, you’ve got 108 days to get $35 together and get ready to BURN!

Volunteer Announcement!
Good Afternoon Participants! I've been looking at the volunteer pages as we creep ever closer to the required limits to release more tickets. WOW, are we getting CLOSE! I won't bore you with too much info, so here's what I know you want to know.
We are short just 11 (ELEVEN!) shifts for Rangers! Many of these are on Saturday around burn time. We suggest buddying up with a friend that you want to spend a few hours with.
And for Medics, we are short just 6 shifts! I've been really impressed at the medic turn out so far. Remember, at Gateway we do NOT require CPR training, although some experience with first aid and keeping calm during a crisis is highly recommended.
Please consider committing your time if you haven't already. We can't make this burn happen without all of our amazing participants and volunteers. Thank you for all you have done, thanks in advance for what you will do! <3 🔥 <3
