When comparing venues, it’s important to take into account everything that is included. When you rent ECHO, your venue fee includes the use of the entire ECHO facility from 6pm-11:00pm, prior day ceremony rehearsal with event staff, tables and chairs for up to 130 people, adjustable high-top tables, a mobile bar, and catering kitchen. These items need to be rented at many venues. Also, ECHO is a short walk from several hotels and downtown Burlington.

All event revenue goes directly to supporting our lake stewardship and STEM education initiative as a community non-profit.

Parking Information

There are approximately 60 spots in the paved lot behind ECHO under the Solar Canopy. Parking is “Pay and Display” and to be paid at the kiosks located in the lot.

Parking during the day is first come first serve as ECHO is open to the public between the hours of 10:00-5:00 pm. If your event starts before ECHO opens, there a strong chance many spots will be open and available.

After 5:00 pm, if the lot is not rented by the client, the parking lot will also be available to the public and we cannot guarantee parking. Guests of the event rental must also pay for their own parking per spot. On peak weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day, Brew Fest in July, Grand Point North music festival, Jazz Fest) we strongly recommend renting the lot as many other waterfront activities are happening.

Parking in the ECHO lot behind the building, under the Solar Canopy is $3 per hour from the hours of 8:00 am – 11:00 pm year round.
