4th Weekend in July

The Atwood Summerfest is a popular event, sponsored by the Goodman Community Center in Madison.  The festival is about 3 blocks long on Atwood Ave, and has four music stages to keep fans of many music genres happy.  For the rock crowd, I Am Dragon brought back rock memories of the 80’s and 90’s.

There are also many vendors selling food and other great items.

I enjoy stopping at Wildwood Productions to get a t-shirt. They make the shirts for Art Fair on the Square that occurs two weeks before this festival and sell them for about 60% less than at the art fair ($7). I always get one here at this festival.

We really enjoyed Mighty Wheelhouse and their performance.  As an encoré, they came off the stage and really interacted with the audience. So much fun. Check their schedule for their next performance, which are frequent in the Madison area! Here is one of the songs they performed.
