ECHO AfterDark is what grown ups do when they go out on the town in Burlington, Vermont.

At ECHO AfterDark we mix up the perfect cocktail for the intellectually adventurous: one part science, one part intrigue and two parts fun, served nicely within the beautiful atmosphere of ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. Socialize among the fish, frogs, turtles and other wildlife while engaging in hot topics of the day. ECHO AfterDark events are designed to engage our dynamic and growing adult audience.

All proceeds benefit ECHO Open Door educational access program.

All ECHO AfterDark events are 21+ unless otherwise noted. For more information email

'Burton Presents' web video series
Burton Presents' is an eight-part web video series that showcases world-class snowboarding through the eyes of Burton’s top riders. On Thursday, November 13, 6:30 to 9 p.m., ECHO AfterDark will showcase six “Burton Presents” short films on our high definition screen with Dolby 5.1 surround sound in the Revision Lakeside Pavilion. Representatives from Burton Snowboards will be on hand to introduce the films and hand out fantastic giveaways and more.

But wait, there is more! Otter Creek and Shed brewing Company are providing every attendee a free pint of beer. There are two choices: the seasonal, Kind Ryed; and, what would a snow sport event be without Shed Mountain Ale.

There will be a complete cash bar and light snacks provided by Sugarsnap.
