Cities find a way to celebrate their neighborhoods and a sense of shared community spirit. Burnsville had more National Night Out neighborhood parties in 2007 than any Minnesota city of comparable size.
We work hard with our citizens to create events that bring our citizens together to celebrate and enjoy each other. Over 2000 people enjoyed the first annual International Festival in Nicollet Commons Park in 2007 and the 2nd annual International Festival in 2008 brought over 3000 people to the event.
Over 20 nationalities found in Burnsville were represented during a great celebration of dance, music, culture and food!
In 2008 we celebrated the first "I Love Burnsville" week. From May 28 thru June 3, a daily menu of neighborhood and park activities swept across the City.
