RENT OUR VENUES
With event space hard to find in downtown Burlington, Burlington City Arts offers three unique locales ready to accommodate events of any size. In addition to serving a multitude of needs, rentals provide financial support to help us sustain and enhance the artistic vibrancy of the greater Burlington area.
BCA provides a limited number of subsidized space rentals through an application process with the goal of making BCA-managed spaces accessible and welcoming for all members of our community. Applications are reviewed by BCA staff on a rolling basis throughout the year. BCA-managed spaces include Contois Auditorium, City Hall Park, and the BCA Center.

"The event went well and the space was excellent. Also, “hats off”... for your excellent assistance in getting the event scheduled, for your flexibility, and for the timely way you responded to all our inquiries. Also, the security / maintenance person who was onsite was professional, courteous, and went above and beyond to be helpful. I would enthusiastically recommend people consider BCA for events."
