Third Sunday in August
The final year of this festival was in 2014.
The Triangle Ethnic Fest is a great festival in Madison that I have been attending since the 1980’s. It’s put on by the Bayview Foundation near downtown. It’s called “triangle” due to the shape of the neighborhood. This festival celebrates ethnic diversity and highlights ethnic dancing of the many cultures in Madison. The diversity here equals the (Williamson) Willy Street part of town.
Sadira is a favorite at the festival as well. I have been watching them perform for over 20 years.
The neighborhood kids are well represented as well, they perform the first dance that they practiced all summer.
“Bollywood”, representing the pop culture in present-day India.
Croatian dancing by Folklore Village International Dancers.
Viv Ncaus Hmong Dancers, they were so cute!
When you are hungry, there are lots of vendors with great food.
This festival is always so much fun, travel the world without leaving Madison!
