Scorched Nuts 2020: Hindsight

Welcome Home!

Scorched Nuts 2020 will be held May 21 – 25, over memorial day weekend.

Scorched Nuts is a gathering of a collaborative, creative community, largely based out of the tri-state region of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. It is built and run by its participants and volunteers.

The event embraces the 10 Principles of Burning Man and will be an interactive experience that is both everything and nothing you will expect.

The key ingredient to making Scorched Nuts a successful event is for everyone to PARTICIPATE! Every person who joins us for the event is expected to find someway to give of themselves with the goal of making a better community for everyone. Each individual pays their way here, there is no compensation for performance, volunteer work or artwork. Everyone is here as an equal, and as such we all have part to play.

The land is located just south of Athens Ohio in Rutland. It is a reclaimed strip mine and has no amenities, however porta potties are supplied. The land is completely private and we encourage our Participants to embrace their desires and let go of inhibitions. This is a place where you can dress in over the top costumes, see unique art pieces fill the landscape, dance the night away and let go of any fears of being judged. All are welcome and all are free to express themselves as they desire.
