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.
