It all started with a love for Burlington’s Riverfront

In 2018, a group of citizen banded together to take over management of Burlington’s Riverfront properties – The Port, The Auditorium, and The Depot.  The non-profit 501(c)3 Burlington Riverfront Entertainment was formed, and through a flood, pandemic, and more, BRE has been able to provide quality entertainment to Burlington and the surrounding areas!

A continuing vision for Burlington’s Riverfront!

Our volunteer board of directors, along with our staff, have a continued vision for improving Burlington’s Riverfront properties and bringing quality entertainment to Burlington, Iowa.
