Admission went directly to help cover the many event costs which include permit, fire department, police, fire ignition specialist, and event costs.
Love Burn is an official regional Burning Man event held annually in South Florida. The effigies remained standing after the annual event due to high winds. We hope for a beautiful day to celebrate and burn these structures. There will be NO camping.
O, Miami is a community-based festival. We like to say it’s a “Miami” festival first and a “poetry” festival second because the poetry is simply the means by which we celebrate our home.
The Historic Virginia Key Beach Park opens at sunrise. The Love Burn with O, Miami celebration with fire performers, fireworks and the burning of the Wooden Globe and Hands of Love begin at sunset.

NO camping.  BYOB. Rain or shine. No refunds.


As a Volunteer-run event, Your Volunteering is greatly appreciated. Be a Ranger, Leave No Trace lead, Gate crew, Fire Perimeter and more.
