About Burlington Steamboat Days

Since 1963, Burlington Steamboat Days has played host to some of the finest entertainers in the U.S. Burlington Steamboat Days is the most prominent annual festival in Burlington and the surrounding area entertaining a widely diverse audience in the Greater Burlington community for the last 50 years. We have seen entertainers such as Louie Armstrong in 1964 (our first big entertainer on stage) and Buck Owen in 1966 rocking the early days. We broke a record for the world’s longest conga line with Miami Sound Machine in 1986, we did “The Twist” with Chubby Checker in 1990, “Riding the Storm Out” with REO Speedwagon in 1993 and singing “Daydream Believer” while the Monkees rocked the stage. Recent acts within the last few years include Poison, Sugarland, ZZ Top, 3 Doors Down, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, Alice Cooper, Twisted Sister, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and many, many others! We also have a carnival midway with over 25 rides presented and many carnival games you can step up and play.
