Welcome

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Burnsville Fire Muster.

The Burnsville Fire Muster is one of the great community festivals in the Upper Midwest, drawing more than 18,000 guests over a 4-day run  in early September.

Our mission is simple. We strive to “bring the community of Burnsville together.” With that in mind, we have dozens of events, activities and demonstrations planned to entertain everyone from small children to seniors.

Last year we experienced record attendance while celebrating the 50th birthday of our host city, Burnsville. We continue to add new events, sponsors and entertainment to make the 2015 Burnsville Fire Muster even better for you and your family.

Below you will find a listing of some of our key events along with some details to assist in your planning and attendence.

The Dakota County Fire Chiefs Association is amping up its fire prevention and aiming to decrease the number of kitchen fires in the county with a new kitchen fire prevention trailer.

The Burnsville Fire Department will be conducting live kitchen fire demonstrations this year at the Fire muster.  Kitchen fires are one of the most common types of fires in Dakota County.  But the trailer demonstrations could assist in shrinking the number of kitchen fires. The trailer, which was donated by Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery in Rosemount, will allow Dakota County fire officials to educate the public on how to prevent kitchen fires, the number one type of fire in the U.S. At the demonstration, fire officials will show that a cup of water poured on a small grease fire causes the fire to intensify significantly. This trailer is believed to be one of just a handful of its kind in the nation.

New Show starts every 45 minutes.
