Art Fair On/Off the Square in Madison

2nd Weekend in July

This weekend in July has many festivals in Madison.  Le Fete de Marquette  is also taking place.

Art Fair on the Square refers to the square going around our state Capitol.  The square is packed with people and lots of art for sale. Also many food vendors and even live music stages.

Every year there is a featured artist who designs the t-shirt for each year. The apparel is made by Wildwood Productions.  It also raises money for the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the organization that runs this event.
