Burtonsville Celebrates its Annual Carnival

The 24th Annual Burtonsville carnival runs from September 12 through September 20.

The Burtonsville Volunteer Fire Department hosts the event that features 15 rides, and is located one block east of Route 29 on Route 198 at Star Point Drive.

“We got a new food tent. … Some rides are just for little kids and there’s some that are for older kids,” said Captain Kirk Risinger of the Burtonsville Volunteer Fire Department.
