Saturdays in the Square in Downtown Burlington

There’s lots of action happening on Saturdays this summer in downtown Burlington!


With the Sound of Music Festival still 11 long months away, don’t despair. There are plenty of great live music performances to be found in Burlington!

The series kicked off on June 22 with Canadian Idol Winner Brian Melo, a local favourite. Next up was Danielle Beaudin, another local talent, then Emily Kemp, Glenn Groves and Charissa Pavlou, the 2009 Grand Champion of the CNE’s Rising Star Talent Competition.
