Baker Beach | Battery Chamberlin Rd, San Francisco,CA



This Black Friday, instead of enmeshing yourself in the worst of human behavior, why not come celebrate the best of it?

A local group of artists who call themselves the Museum of Joy will be celebrating the 5th Annual Festival of Light & Gratitude by building a temporary candlelit labyrinth on the northern half of Baker Beach where Burning Man began.

2017 Festival of Light & Gratitude
Friday, November 24, 2017 | 4:30-7 pm
Baker Beach, San Francisco
Free, but please RSVP on Facebook

Gather with hundreds of others of like mind and heart for a twilight exploration of the labyrinth’s luminous spirals, reflecting on whatever matters to you: warmth, generosity, community, justice, wonder, gratitude, brightness, or whatever you choose to bring.

Sundown is at 4:53 pm and it would be awesome if you arrived in time to share the sunset with the group.

Why a labyrinth made of lights? Because winter is coming, dammit, whether metaphysically or actually, and if we all make some rough attempt to move with grace or thoughtfulness or gratitude or glee though a mystical symbol of the complexity of the universe all on fire with light and beauty, maybe the sun will come back to us one day.

Some 2017 notes and guidelines:

  • This is a family friendly event. Please set your intentions accordingly.
  • They respectfully request that you move through the labyrinth in silence, and try not to yell with too much glee while near the space.
  • Although this half of Baker Beach is clothing-optional, they have found that it can be extra-inspiring to come dressed or draped entirely in a color of your choosing that reflects your intention for your walk through the labyrinth. Please do be aware that there is a possibility that you will see (respectful and perfectly pleasant) naked people, especially if you arrive on the earlier side.
  • Sundown, the official opening of the labyrinth, is at 4:53 pm. It would be lovely if you arrived in time to share the sunset and the opening of the labyrinth with the group, but, the labyrinth will be lit until 7 pm unless they are forced by park officials or truly foul weather to close it sooner.

Getting there:

  • Driving: If you’re coming from the East Bay and generously willing to share your car with other festival-goers, please post in the comments how many spaces you have and where you’re leaving from.
  • Muni: It’s slow going, but the 29 Sunset bus runs pretty much straight to the beach until almost midnight.
