Your festival event guide for the Madison, Wisconsin Area, including Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Lafayette, Rock, and Sauk Counties.
Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page for Madison, Wisconsin and the greater area. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main Wisconsin Festival Guide, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures. Please keep in mind that you should not see area festivals that have been canceled or have not yet been confirmed.
Festivals listed here include music festivals, art festivals, food festivals, town festivals, church festivals, cultural festivals and more, but they do not include craft shows, machinery shows, bazaars, county fairs and some other events.
“My Review” means that it’s a link to my review of that festival.
