Visit http://highlight.community for full festival details, all event info, artist lineups, venue information, and more.

Join us for Burlington’s new citywide New Year’s Eve celebration! Mark the beginning of your year with a series of community-produced experiences: a larger than life parade; fireworks; a giant bonfire (fire dancers included!); hands-on creative activities; diverse cultural events; modern art installations; music from across the world; storytelling sessions; and more! Highlight brings Vermont’s creative thinkers, doers, makers, and friends together to create fun and purposeful happenings across the city. Thank you to our presenting sponsors Burlington Telecom and Lake Champlain Transportation!

A ticket to Highlight gets you access to 100% of the events listed on our website; there are no additional fees or ticket costs at any of our events. It’s our hope to keep our ticket prices low enough to create accessibility for a wide range of Vermonters, but if our pricing doesn’t fit into your budget, please reach out to us and we’ll try to accommodate you. To avoid online fees, tickets can be purchased in person at the BCA Center and Phoenix Books.

Highlight bracelets will grant you access to all of our events; for online purchases, you can pick up your bracelets between 12/15 – 12/31 at the BCA Center during normal office hours; you’ll also be able to pick up your bracelets at TBA participating Highlight venues on 12/31. Please note that our event operates on a first-come first-served basis; all venues have a limited capacity, so while we have plenty to offer, if there’s something you really want to see, please arrive early!

If you have questions, we’d love to answer them. Please reach out to us at hello@highlight.community.
