‘Madaila on Main’ Brings Party Downtown

For the second year in a row Downtown Burlington will host Madaila on Main presented by Nectars. The one day music festival will bring music from psych-pop headliner Madaila, Turkuaz and more, as well as food trucks and games. The event kicks off at 2:30pm.

To accommodate this event, Main Street will be closed between Church Street and South Winooski Avenue starting at 7am and lasting until 11pm. This is an essential move to allow for setup, breakdown, as well as, the event itself to go forward.

Detour signs will posted around the downtown to inform drivers of the closure and Burlington police will be on hand to redirect traffic to designated detours.

In light of this closure, here are some helpful tips for getting downtown to enjoy the festival:
