Killarney’s Full Service Parisian Café
One of the largest stops on lost Route 38 has reappeared – Killarney’s Full Service Parisian Café, Taxidermy and Truck stop. Come in every morning for a self-serve cup of your traditional, greasy spoon diner coffee. It’s self-serve, so our salty wait staff has nothing better to do than check your vaccine cards and make sure you wear a mask when not seated. We care about your caffeination and your safety, too!
Photography allowed? Yes, with permission of any participants who will be in the photos.
COVID-19 Precautions: Vaccines are required to enter the café space. Social distancing has been accounted for in table placement. Masks are required whenever patrons are not seated at their own table, and staff will have a mask full time plus spares on hand.
The Pie Chute
3pm-6pm, 8/29-8/31 and 9/02-9/05
It’s the Pie Chute! Returning again from the space-time vortex to deliver flaky, crusty pastries at (relatively) high speed! Open from 3-6pm daily (except Wednesday!) serving homemade handpies, with locally sourced fillings both sweet and savory. Gluten Free jam-dot cookies and vegan pies are provided as options for those who can’t indulge in our all-butter crust. Vaccinated? On days it is open, you are welcome to enjoy your pie in our backyard café space! (Bring your ID and proof of vaccination.)
Photography allowed? Yes, please ask volunteers or other participant’s permission before including humans in your photographs.
COVID-19 Precautions: Outdoors/masks required. The line will be socially distanced with 6′ markers between each group. There is hand sanitizer next to the Pie Hole, and participants should clean their hands before collecting their pastry. Vaccines are required to enjoy your pie in the café.
It’s Not Yard Trash, It’s Art
10a-11:30pm, 8/29-9/06. Lights will only be on when it starts to get dark
Yard full of fun, kitschy stuff and lights
Photography allowed? Yes, with credit.
COVID-19 Precautions: I am not offering human interaction so it will be up to visitors to be safe around each other. It is outside only so that should also make it more safe
A stretch of Route 38 disappeared in summer of 1959. Now, pieces of it have reappeared, stuffed into a private lot in Mt. Baker – but is something strange about them? Come see these (mostly) classic signs day or night, and check out the event listing for events being held at Lost Highway, which include a Café, The Pie Chute, Ice Cream and a Car Wash!
Photography allowed? Yes, with Credit
COVID-19 Precautions: Please follow guidelines, including wearing masks and physical distancing. Visitors are asked to wear their mask if they are within 6′ of others. These signs can be seen from the street without leaving your car or getting off your bike, and are not interactive. Individual events have various requirements, see event listings.
The Golden Hours Project
8/29-9/6 6AM – 11PM
The Golden Hours Project is a space of self expression, in memory of the people & things lost during this pandemic. We invite you to write on a leaf those things that you miss or names people you have lost. Read what others have written, approach the space from different sides & slowly move through it. See the leaves rustle in the wind, day and night. We offer a place to have loss be seen & shared, plus offer love & hope through that expression. This art has changed recently. Come see the new aspects! Created by our community. Designed & hosted by Jeny & Brian Bird.

Talk to God phone
At the Burn almost every year for the last two decades there has been a symbol, a waypoint, an opportunity: to speak with God. There have been laughs, tears, concern and a most unique human interaction…
…in a phone booth.

Weekends: 12:00 PM – 12:00 AM Weekdays: 5:00 PM – 11 PM Labor Day: 12:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Run! Jump! Duck! Welcome to Optical Course, the greatest, and most difficult, laser obstacle course you’ve ever seen. Brought to you by Jalove, a thirteen-year-old life-long burner, and Nacho Bracken, her father. This narrow, 3.3-foot-wide, 32-foot-long pathway is packed with lasers… break even one beam, and you will face excruciating pain as you’ve never felt before… Just kidding. At least two modes of play: Cowardly (a.k.a. Easy) and Doomed (a.k.a. Hard). You MIGHT survive Cowardly mode but your victory will be tainted by your unwillingness to play the REAL way. The real way is, well, to put it in a word, impossible. The Star of Death, climax of Optical Course, will surely fell you. But good luck. This is Optical Course, and you are doomed to fail.
