A Midwest Burners Regional Burn

A Weekend That May Change Your Life!

InterFuse is THE Midwest Regional Burn - a yearly camping event that takes place in May. The goal of InterFuse is to unite in the celebration of art, fire, and life. We build a temporary city of tents, domes, light, dance, fire and music, revel in our community for the duration of the event, and then pack everything out while leaving no trace.


Fort Frenzy

Let's quit beating around the bush, and do what we are all thinking, if even subconsciously. Fort Burn!

We'll all give a throwback to our childhood and build forts. Couch cushions, sheets, tarps, sophisticated interlocking pieces... everything is fair game to make a massive network of tunnels, chambers, barricades, and secret doors.

And the effigy, what else? A giant fort! Who's with me?

The Effigy Burn

On Saturday night at 10:00 PM, InterFusers will gather at the main effigy in center field. Fire spinners, drummers and other performance artists will build our energies to a fever pitch before we set fire to the effigy and burn it down.

But the celebration doesn't end there! The energy we build will be dispersed through the InterFuse community as participation kicks into high gear everywhere, all night long.
