2023 marks Burlington’s 150th anniversary. The journey to Burlington’s sesquicentennial anniversary began in 1873 when the villages of Wellington Square and Port Nelson merged to become the Village of Burlington. The Village of Burlington became the Town of Burlington in 1914 and the City of Burlington in 1974.
Throughout the year, some events or programs will have added features to help commemorate the anniversary and will be marked with a new identifier for the occasion. More information on those events or programs will be shared when details are ready.
