What is UnBroken Spring?
Each year during spring break, the Houston area burner community holds an all-volunteer run, four day, experiment of temporary community inspired by Burning Man in celebration of art, music, creativity and radical self-expression.
Other tenets that bind our community and influence the character of our events include:
- Inclusive and accepting, no prerequisites to join (other than being 21+ as required by the property owner)
- No spectators, solely volunteer operation
- A gifting economy means no money, vending, nor bartering are sanctioned
- Leave No Trace, we leave all spaces better than we found them and pack out our own trash
- Personal responsibility to a very high degree
- Consent and universal respect for individuals & community
When and Where?
Unbroken Spring is held annually during Houston schools’ spring break in Liberty County about 45 minutes North-east of Houston. The closest city is Dayton, TX. Specific location will be provided to all ticket holders and in the Survival Guide. This year’s event is Noon on Thursday 19 March through 5 pm on Sunday 22 March.

A Theme Camp is a group of participants of any size who come together to gift art or experiences to the Unbroken Spring community. You may plan on bringing incredible interactive art or something small scale, or even a concept or performance that you want to share with participants. You may have a fun name or theme. You may have an elaborately decorated camp. Or not. There are no requirements. Your camp’s space will be placed on the map in a zone appropriate to your needs.
