They are a Burning Man theme camp. They are “teachers, nurses, welders, business men, lawyers, artists, computer programmers, performers, professional climbers, parents, and friends. They hold degrees in everything from mathematics to art history, but they are not your average 30 somethings.”
“We are Unicorns because we share a collective desire to add more life and color to the world. We are those people. The ones walking down the street wearing a little more pink, a lot more faux fur, and way more sparkles than might be considered decent. We are the weird neighbors – the GOOD kind – the ones who show up to the fire dept. pancake breakfast on pogo sticks. We are the only adults at a kid’s movie and the only kids at the office. We are your best friends with whip cream and a cherry on top. And we take fun seriously!”
Not sure what to expect? Are you getting nervous just reading this post? What kind of freak show will The Unicorn Love Party be featuring this year? Local Denver DJs Kanyon, Ishe, MLE, Motto, andSchmid- E will be spinning beats that coincide with the Seven Deadly Sins theme: Lust, Greed, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Gluttony, and Pride. There will be performance art from a slew of local talent: aerial silks, acro-yoga, and of course, fire.
If you missed The Love Party last year, this is your chance for redemption. Check out the video below from last year’s party for some inspiration:
This event is a fundraiser for The Fucking Unicorns, who plan on using the proceeds to build a brand spankin’ new “Imagination Machine,” a mobile performance stage, dance floor, and play structure, to take out to the playa this coming year. Last year, with the money that they raised, they constructed a behemoth of a mobile LED rainbow, complete with a bangin’ soundsystem.

Can you come dressed as a Unicorn? Sure.
Can you come dressed as a Sloth? Why not.
So come one, come all. While all the other couples are making nice, free your spirit and sin away.
