Gnome Camp Returns!

August 9, 2011 News No Comments

Gnome Camp will be back in all our white-bearded, pointy-hatted glory at Burning Man this year! Look for our tall green GNOME CAMP sign on Birthday & 7:30.

In honor of this year’s Rites of Passage theme, we’re adding an important new activity to our line-up: Gnome Conversions! Now you can go beyond merely adopting a gnome and actually BECOME A GNOME in our wonderful, whimsical rite of passage ritual. See how it feels to be a pint-sized purveyor of mischief with a pointy red hat and a twinkle in your eye, then scamper off in your shiny new gnome form to coax bounty from the fertile soils of Black Rock City.

Speaking of Rights of Passage, Gnome Camp celebrates its 5th birthday this year! In honor of the occasion we’re hosting a GNOME REUNION, so don your favorite gnome costume or bring your adopted gnome and connect with other gnomes, gnome parents and gnome-lovers in our shady Gnome Dome for cool beverages, yummy snacks and live entertainment!


Gnome Adoptions: Monday 1-3 pm

Gnome Conversions: Tuesday, 1-3 pm, Wednesday, 1-3 pm

Gnome Reunion: Thursday, 3-5 pm

Show us your Burning Man gnome photos!

Burning Man 2010 was an epic success for Gnome Camp! We adopted 300 gneedy garden gnomes to loving families (and one to Evil Moustache Guy… you know who you are), and it brought tears to our gnomey little eyes to see all of our tiny charges headed out on their very own adventures with their gnew parents.

Now, it’s time to show us what your gnomes have been up to. We’ve added a Burning Man 2010 gallery to our photo page: just go there and click “Upload your gnome photo.” You can also post them on our Facebook group and Flickr group, and even tweet about your gnome’s adventures using the hashtag #gnomecamp!

We can’t wait to see where your gnome has been!

Gnome Camp is returning to Black Rock City! This year we are bringing a record-breaking 300 garden gnomes in need of loving homes. Won’t you come and bring a pointy-hatted bundle of joy into your world?

The Gnome Adoption Agency will open at 2 pm Monday thru Thursday. Please arrive promptly, as prospective parents will be interviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Despite our larger-than-normal pool of cheeky darlings, we expect to run out daily.

All Gnome Parents are required to provide photographic evidence of their gnome’s gnew life. If you have any sort of digital camera, we request that you use that: however, we will have a few disposables to give out.

Come find us on Florence and 7:30. We’ll be the camp with the giant sign that says Gnome Camp.

See you on the Playa!
