Welcome to Wasteland Weekend’s new and permanent location!

South of Rosewood Blvd • East of California City Blvd • West of Claymine Road

Edwards, CA

35.087439, -117.825400

Getting There

We ask that all attendees enter Rosewood Blvd from the WEST via California City Blvd, regardless of what directions your GPS may try to give you. The GPS may try to take you down roads that are closed, impassable, or are not really “roads.”

DO NOT APPROACH FROM THE EAST SIDE OF ROSEWOOD or CLAYMINE.  If you try to come in from the east, you will not be able to enter the event from that direction. Instead, you will be routed to the end of the line of cars coming from the WEST end of Rosewood Blvd.  (We are keeping the east approach open as much as possible for emergency vehicles and staff members on official business).  Trying to enter the event from the wrong direction will get you rerouted all the way around and to the back of the line to the west, so please don’t waste your time.

When approaching correctly from the west, you WILL be able to bypass the line of cars IF everyone in your vehicle has already checked in and already have their wristbands. We have a special “return” lane for this once you get to the check-in area.

The road leading to the event (Rosewood Blvd.) is a dirt road, so please drive slowly and carefully.  The road is relatively flat with some usual dirt road bumps and dips, but with careful driving it should be accessible by any vehicle.  Rosewood is split into two sides, like a two lane street.  Please keep to the right side to avoid oncoming cars.

Note: Just as with our previous location, the surrounding area looks filled with “roads,” but most are not finished, usable, or exist at all.  Any roads other than the highways and major streets represented in Google Maps are purely dirt roads for city planning use only.  Do not try to use them to get to the event, because you’ll either get lost, stuck, or sent to the back of the proper line anyway.
