National Night Out
Historically, Burnsvillle has among the highest number of neighborhoods in cities of comparable size participating in National Night Out. Mayor Kautz has continued to support widespread participation and now, more important than ever, has worked hard to create an evening which will foster good relationships between neighbors, individuals and law enforcement and strengthening a true sense of community.
International Festival at Nicollet Commons Park
Initiated and developed by Mayor Kautz, Burnsville's Annual International Festival brings thousands of people of more than 20 nationalities together to celebrate diversity through dance, music, culture, and food!
I Love Burnsville
In 2008 we celebrated the first "I Love Burnsville" week with a daily schedule of neighborhood and park activities across the City. Today, we continue to follow the Mayor's leadership to highlight and celebrate inclusion through the "You Belong Here" campaign.
