Total Solar Eclipse in Burlington

It’s not until right before totality that you realize how easy it would be to miss 99% of eclipses altogether. That last 1% makes all the difference. The light dims in a surreal way, the birds go quiet, you notice that you’re suddenly a little cold, the mosquitoes may have come out and you’re actually really happy about all of it. 

If you ever needed proof that we're all in this together, just floating on a big rock in space, wait for the smaller rock that's circling you to come between you and the bigger, brighter rock your rock is circling and it will all make sense. At least for 3 minutes and 15 seconds in Burlington, VT.

Eclipse on the Waterfront

The Great North American Eclipse came to town last week and it beat the hype by a country mile.

50,000 visitors came to witness totality in this town of 45,000 and it was the friendliest invasion you could imagine. Different from the crowd you might see for a concert crowd or a sporting event, there was nothing rowdy or in any way aggressive about it. There was that guy who walked around town carrying a six foot wooden cross and admittedly, you’d smell weed here and there, but 50,000 people came to Burlington with their most positive energy to share this incredible experience with us. And we're still feeling the good vibes today.

But let's not forget, while a total solar eclipse might be a once-in-a-lifetime event, Burlington is a great place to be all day, every day.Eclipse on the Waterfront Beyond the celestial wonders, there's a vibrant tapestry of experiences waiting to be explored. From great music and events to an award-winning culinary and craft fermentation scene, Burlington offers something for everyone. And then there's Lake Champlain, the majestic Green Mountains, and so much more.
