Mercantile Hall (map)

Join us for First Thursdays from 5pm-9pm at Mercantile Hall. The first Thursday of each month May-October we will be hosting a recurring reason for people to walk around and enjoy downtown. We will host this in conjunction with the Farmer's Market in order to bring a whole lot of energy to downtown Burlington. Over the course of First Thursday's, we will have bags, a bar, live music and pop up vendors (crafts, businesses, breweries, wineries, etc.). Need a space to host a meeting or small gathering? First Thursday's at Mercantile Hall is a great opportunity for this!

Please email with any questions, ideas or thoughts!

Trucks & Taps Event Open to the Public on Sunday, July 1st from 3-8 pm

Come hang out at Mercantile Hall and listen to live music, try some awesome beer, and visit some amazing food trucks & vendors for some delicious grub. It’s going to be a great day to celebrate community and Burlington’s #smalltownlove.

What to expect:

We will have a variety of food trucks & vendors on deck with some pretty awesome grub available for purchase. Try some of your favorite Craft Beers including Central Waters, Bells, Lakefront Brewery, New Glarus, and Sprechers. Or, if you fancy a cocktail or soda, stroll inside to the Merc Hall Bar.*

There will be limited seating inside Mercantile Hall, as well as picnic tables outside Mercantile Hall or at the picnic tables across the street at Weimhoff Square Park (across the street from the Mercantile Hall parking lot), located at the intersection of Washington Street & Pine Street. If you bring a pup, please make sure he or she plays nice with others. All outdoor tables (behind Mercantile Hall and at Weimhoff Square) will be dog friendly and have some pretty tasty water available.

Food Prices Will be Posted by Each Vendor, no special tickets required

Bar Prices: All Beer & Wine: $5, Mixed Drinks: $6, Sodas with Cups of Ice: $3

Pups loved. Families encouraged. Live band. Dude, it’s going to be awesome.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND INVITE A FRIEND! (right now before they make plans)
