Getting together with friends and family to enjoy great food is a hallmark of summers in Vermont. Pair it with live music in a beautiful park and it’s SoBu Night Out. This summer series brings food trucks, live bands and plenty of space for playing games or just relaxing with friends in South Burlington.

On Thursday nights during July and August, a series of local bands play in the bandshell, while a variety of culinary delights are served up by food trucks lining the park. Beer and wine are available for purchase as well. There is something for everyone, including kids’ fare and ice cream!

Those who live close by are encouraged to walk or ride bikes to the park. The South Burlington Recreation Path runs through the park and a bike valet is available to check bikes for free.  

In its fourth year, this event gives the community a chance to slow down for an evening, gather together and enjoy some of the simple joys of summer. The City’s Department of Recreation and Parks pulls the event together, but it is really those that come out each night who make it special.

Looking around the park, smiles light up the faces of folks as they see old friends and make new ones. Parents and kids play lawn games. The end-of-day sun casts a warm glow over folks swaying to the music. 

Call friends and mark the calendar to spend a night in South Burlington’s Veterans Memorial Park this summer.
