With Burning Man canceled again this summer due to COVID, Spring Spark, a drive-thru “art experience” is the closest you’ll get to the Black Rock Desert phenomenon. 

You’ll be able to view 30 art pieces, at least five installations from previous Burning Man events, as you crawl along the one-mile route at 2 mph. Make sure you have full tank of gas before getting in line. Als0, pack snacks. Unlike last year’s event, no food will be sold this time around. 

Spring Spark is being presented May 21 & 22 from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at the Mine Shaft, 2300 Mine Shaft Ln. Rancho Cordova. Tickets are $30 per vehicle. Check for ticket availability HERE.
