Why is the 'Burning Porcupine' an 'Alt Porc Fest?'
« on: August 15, 2009, 04:53:41 pm »


Just curious...since I'm jumping into learning more about all these various groups and people (and events, etc.), I came across a Ridley video that showed "The Burning Porcupine" as an alternative to the famous PorcFest.

I'm not sure its much of a alternative.  It's a different week isn't it?  It's just a different event I would say.

Burning Porcupine Festival began as both a protest of the FSP holding Porcfest at Gunstock and an introduction to Grafton.
As P'fest has moved back to Rogers and Burning Porcupine Festival's sponsor returned to P'fest, Burning Porcupine Festival is now an introduction to Grafton and an opportunity for folks that didn't make it to P'fest to get together and, for folks who went to P'fest and wished it (the hanging out part) didn't end ;D

When is this "Burning Porcupine"?

Not very nice to burn porcupines, what did they ever do to you?

Unless you are cooking them, then you are ruining your meal...

The name is a parody of an event called Burning Man, with the vague intention for it to be a really wild party kind of like that. Instead it actually tends to be really laid back and not that freaky at all other than there are a shitload of anarchists hanging out by a campfire, hatin' on the gooberment, eating, drinking, smoking and generally having a good time. There are events, but one similarity is that Burning Porcupine is largely not a regimented and scheduled event. The participants bring to it whatever they want and that's what shapes it.

Thanks for the clarification, guys. There's no way I'm missing the events next year :)
