Marquette Waterfront Festival-Summer Kickoff!


2nd Weekend in June

This is the first of four festivals produced every year by the Marquette Neighborhood Association.  This one is located at Yahara Place Park along the Yahara River and Lake Monona in Madison. It’s the neighborhood’s first summer festival packed full of entertainment for all ages.

This is last year (couldn’t make it this year). It was Saturday afternoon, this is the scene. It was 4:30, great Cajun music was to begin at 5:00
