Wiesn in a Box’s mobile Oktoberfest has traveled all over the country, from Atlanta to Portland and back. But no stop has been quite like Burning Man in Black Rock City, Nevada. The 8-day event brought together 70,000 people to create a new community in the middle of the desert.
Burning Man attendees live by a code that promotes giving and sharing; nearly all arts, music, and food is provided free of charge by the community, for the community. Wiesn in a Box got into the spirit by providing fellow “Burners” a place to relax with over 2,500 beers and 500 pretzels.
Wiesn in a Box will continue its tour to communities across the US. Find out more at www.goethe.de/wiesn
