Burt Block Party

Last Updated: August 27, 2021 


Due to another unfavourable weather forecast today, and the overwhelmingly positive response from last weekend’s move indoors, tonight’s Burt Block Party performances are moving inside to the Burton Cummings Theatre. The outdoor site will offer food trucks and a place to “chill” but for the comfort of artists and guests, all shows will be inside the theatre .  Please review the information below and click HERE for FAQ’s.


True North is pleased to welcome guests back to the Burton Cummings Theatre. We recognize that getting used to a new normal for public gatherings will take some adjustment, and for the safety of the entire community, we appreciate your adherence and understanding. Please review True North’s Health & Wellness Principles and other key information below.

We are looking forward to seeing you again!

A detailed ‘Know Before You Go’ communication will be issued to all ticket holders prior to the event date. For more information, please email us anytime at info@tnse.com.
