*No Wednesday in the Park or New Spaces Sunday Music in the Park in 2019  

Beginning in 2019, the City of Burnsville will no longer host "Wednesday in the Park" or the "New Spaces Sunday Music in the Park" gatherings. Instead, the City is coordinating a BRAND NEW, day-long summer festival to take place on June 6 and July 25. The new "Party on the Plaza" will be a day-long street fair in and around Nicollet Commons Park and the Ames Center Plaza. It will include mobile food vendors, craft and market vendors, live entertainment and much more.
