Description

Welcome to Flowburger 

Flowburger is a 42 hour juggling and flow arts retreat, and an experiment in minimalist flow events. There will be no classes, no DJ's, no vendors--nothing but porto potties, music courtesy of Jonah's library, and a space to use for practice, learning and connecting with friends.

 

This time around, celebrate the autumn equinox and kick off the season with your flowmies at our special edition Firewalk on Saturday night at sunset. The firewalk will be run by Jonah and is a sober, risk-assumed activity. 

 

Finances will be shared after the event, expected expenses are porto potties and a stipend for maintenance and use of the land. If there is miraculously money left over it will go toward the next iteration of Flowburger and any incidental purchases made by the org to support the event.

The Structure

  • Workshops
    While there is no schedule, there will be a renegade board--if you want to see a workshop, teach it!
  • Fire Spinning
    We will have a fuel depot, BYO fuel
    We will not solicit volunteers for safety, each person is expected to safety for the next person to burn after them so no one is stuck on safety for more than a few minutes
  • Vendors
    None, food or otherwise. There are a handful of local eatery options within 10 minutes of the site, including a pretty decent pizza place called Snappy Tomato Pizza that delivers!
  • Performances
    This time we will not have an open stage due it being a lot to conduct with the firewalk. It will return for the next burger
  • Volunteering
    Some volunteers will be needed for gate, contact Jonah if interested in helping out
  • Juggling Games
    Games will happen again, potentially during lunch this time, weather depending

The Rules

  • Gate is open 6pm to midnight Friday, it will reopen at 8am Saturday.
  • There are gate sales IF we have tickets left, but they end at 2pm Saturday.
  • Whips with No Crackers only
  • No Fire Breathing

This event will be operated in accordance with the 10 principles and our safer spaces policy. Pack everything you need to survive and have your idea of a fun time, be prepared to Leave No Trace, and above all Don't Be That Guy.

the backstory

Many moons ago Marvin Ong would wax poetic on his "make your own cheeseburger" philosophy. Everyone has a different definition of the perfect cheeseburger. Some people like mustard but not pickles, some want a bun, some want a donut as the bun, some don't even want cheese. In the end, only you know your perfect cheeseburger, and you're welcome to enjoy it how you like, just don't go raining on someone else's cheeseburger because they have different tastes.

 

After many years of co-creating events and working in the flow arts and juggling communities, the organizer Jonah has the opportunity and privilege to present this variation on the flow arts retreat cheeseburger. An event focused on keeping costs as low as possible, inspired by burns and modeled in large part on juggling conventions.

Covid Vaccination Policy

Attendees must be Fully Vaccinated or Up to Date (boosted), if able, within 6 months of the date of the event. Per the CDC, this generally means at least 2 doses, plus booster if initial series was more than 5 months before the start of the event. 

Or, test at home and again at gate

We highly encourage all attendees, even vaccinated, to test before leaving the house as Covid has grown more prevalent and effectiveness of vaccines has decreased.
