Mobility Updates

We are committed to supporting participants who have mobility issues at Lakes of Fire. Our goal is to make the event more accessible and provide a better experience for everyone. For more information about mobility check out our ADA & Mobility page on our website.

If you have a ticket and mobility challenges, we encourage you to self-identify and contact us via the Mobility & Handjob Assistance application

Our teams have marked volunteer shifts that are more accessible, and we invite you to join us if you want to help your community members.

If you want to help your fellow community members, we invite you to volunteer with us.  

We have a temple!

The Temple of Rain is a celebration of the beautiful and complex diversity that is emotional expression through tears. It invites people to reflect on, contemplate and release their most vulnerable selves in a place that is safe and without shame. 

Tears can be freeing, tears can cleanse and release. Tears can bring softness and healing. Tears can connect us on a most intimate level. As Charles Dickens once wrote:  “Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth overlying our hard hearts” 

Let it rain.

Please remember that all offerings left at the Temple need to be burnable objects. All objects that are made from non-burnable material (metal, plastic etc) will be removed from the Temple prior to burning on Sunday morning at 8am. If you have any questions, please email temple@lakesoffire.org
