Burlington Discover Jazz Festival
Burlington, Vermont is a beautiful, small city located on the shores of Lake Champlain, in between the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains in the Champlain Valley. Countless outdoor activities, a top notch local food scene, and vibrant nightlife make this a vacation destination for visitors and a quality-of-life dream for residents.

With free live music on four stages in downtown Burlington, headlining shows at the historic Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and the Waterfront Tent, and nightly showcases in restaurants and venues all over the city, the festival brings this community to life with a 10-day-long party.
