What?

Not-Ephemerisle is an unorganized spontaneous temporary floating city on the Sacramento River Delta. It's a bring-your-own-ground event.

We construct a floating city from nothing and live in it for four days. You could think of it as Burning Man on water, but that's surely not the whole deal. After Ephemerisle 2009 the original organizers stepped down, but the community continued to show up in 2010. In 2011 again there are no organizers, but we still expect about 200 people to show up and be self-reliant. If you show up, expect to become friends with some of the most interesting and inspiring people you'll ever meet.

Bring art, build your own boats and platforms, make music, go wakeboarding and enjoy being a pioneer.
