Summer Nights Concerts

The city’s recreation division returned to work in March 2021 and looks forward to presenting programs adapted to our current state guidelines. Tournaments, facility rentals, and playfield rentals are also impacted. Some of our beloved programs will not happen this year, while others will be added in or modified for participation. Specific updates are listed here, as of May 2021.

Start your weekend off with live outdoor music on a sweet summer night. Dine downtown Burlington, then stroll to the Visitor Center amphitheater to enjoy a free concert on the lawn.
