Waterfront Park — The crown jewel of Burlington’s shoreline, Waterfront Park is a sprawling, grassy destination for major bands, which headline tented concerts from spring to fall.
Snow Farm Vineyard — Snow Farm Vineyard’s name references the challenges of growing wine grapes in Vermont’s cold climate. But all that hard work pays off in the summertime, when the vines grow heavy with more than 30 varieties of the fruit — and visitors stream in for sips and idyllic sights of nearby Lake Champlain. The Lane family’s Thursday night summer concerts are an island tradition, dating back nearly as far as the vineyard’s 1996 founding. Picnickers tune in for freshly fired flatbreads from Pizza Papillo and a diverse lineup of local talent — from Josh Panda to Carol Ann Jones to the Starline Rhythm Boys. Between the wines, the vines and the stellar sonic vibes, we’re honestly surprised this is Snow Farm’s first Daysie.
