A Midwest Burners Regional Burn

A Weekend That May Change Your Life!

InterFuse is THE Midwest Regional Burn - a yearly camping event that takes place in May. The goal of InterFuse is to unite in the celebration of art, fire, and life. We build a temporary city of tents, domes, light, dance, fire and music, revel in our community for the duration of the event, and then pack everything out while leaving no trace.

Forces of Nature

Interfuse has a reputation for its crummy weather. Torrential downpours for days resulting in “Mudderfuse.” Gale force winds brought us “Hurricane Shaniqua” which destroyed entire camps and large infrastructure in a matter of minutes. Then of course, there was that year that it snowed. Yes, SNOWED! Heck, there were even a couple years where the sun actually shined on us! Nature is a force to be reckoned with, and so are we. This year, instead of going head-to-head, we’ll join forces!

In 2015 we will give nature her due! The honor and respect and revelry she deserves. Our burn forecast prediction is awesome with a chance of shit-storm. You can expect low pressure fun and high pressure parking enforcement. There will no doubt be a tidal wave of creativity, so be sure to dress accordingly! There is definitely a chance of a popup snow/lighting/thunder/hail storm, so don’t forget to pack your umbrella! Severe storms can produce dangerously large hail or high winds capable of causing significant damage, and can lead to flash flooding and mudslides. I’d like my mudslide with extra Kahlua please! In the event of a natural disaster such as a tornado, earthquake, hurricane or volcano eruption….you’re screwed. Hope you brought condoms! This is not a test, but you have been warned! You should practice radical self reliance and be prepared for every possible act of nature.

Join us as we celebrate forces of nature! Bring us your art and your creativity. Come dance in our ring of fire and help us shake the earth in the eye of the storm.

The Effigy Burn

On Saturday night at 10:00 PM, InterFusers will gather at the main effigy in center field. Fire spinners, drummers and other performance artists will build our energies to a fever pitch before we set fire to the effigy and burn it down.

But the celebration doesn't end there! The energy we build will be dispersed through the InterFuse community as participation kicks into high gear everywhere, all night long.
