Refuse and recycling pickup for residents that have a regularly scheduled Tuesday collection day will also occur on July 5. These residents should have their carts out by 6:30am on this date to ensure collection as well. More holiday schedule information about large item work orders, brush collection, and drop-off sites can be found here.

Metro Transit will run holiday schedules for several routes on Monday, July 4. All standing paratransit rides are canceled on Monday, July 4.

Please remember that fireworks that leave the ground/shoot up in the air are illegal in Madison, with the exception of professional pyrotechnic displays, which have a permit and are inspected. Sparklers, snakes, caps, and party poppers may be used with caution. To report illegal fireworks in your neighborhood, please call the police non-emergency number (608-255-2345) and give the most accurate location you can for where you are hearing the fireworks.

Meetings

  • For information about City meetings scheduled for the week of July 4, please consult the City meeting schedule.

Events

  • We're celebrating the reopening of The Glen Golf Park with a Sunday afternoon of family fun! The community is invited to join Madison Parks and Madison Parks Foundation at The Glen for the Grand Reopening Celebration on Sunday, July 10 (rain date Sunday, July 17), from 3pm-7pm. Read more here.
  • One of the Midwest's most popular and highly regarded outdoor celebrations of the arts will return to the Capitol Square on Saturday, July 9, and Sunday, July 10, as the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art presents the 64th annual Art Fair on the Square. Admission is free! Details can be found here.
  • Madison Public Library invites you to enjoy child-led play at Reindahl and Meadowood Park this summer on Wednesday evenings from 5-7PM. These outdoor play events are based on the educational approach of AnjiPlay, which focuses on letting children explore and take risks. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. Messy clothes and a water bottle are encouraged. If you'd like, bring along a picnic dinner and make an evening of it! All ages and abilities welcome. There will be eight Wild Rumpus events throughout the summer.
  • MadLit is back this summer on Fridays, 8pm-11pm, on the 100 block of State Street. Find the 2022 schedule of artists here.
  • Madison Contemporary Dance, a Madison-based nonprofit dance company, will perform at Art Fair on the Square on Saturday, July 9, at 3:30. Contemporary and professional street-style dance will perform pieces created together. This is an opportunity to see ballet and modern-based contemporary dance, and street styles such as hip hop, krump, house, popping, breakdancing, and more.

Announcements

  • As the Fourth of July holiday approaches, the City of Madison Fire Department reminds everyone to enjoy the holiday safely. Although fun for some, the use of fireworks is illegal in the City of Madison, Village of Shorewood Hills, Town of Madison, and Town of Blooming Grove. Sparklers, snakes, snaps, caps, and party poppers may be used with caution during your holiday celebrations. Read here for safety tips and more information.
  • The Common Council has an open and competitive opportunity for a Legislative Analyst with the City of Madison's Common Council Office.
  • As the upcoming school year quickly approaches, the City of Madison Traffic Engineering Division is hiring a number of qualified candidates to work part-time as a School Crossing Guard. Though vacancies exist in several areas, the city sees the greatest need for applicants on the west side of Madison. Learn more here.
  • Kids aged 6 months to less than 5 years old are now eligible to be vaccinated. Public Health Madison & Dane County recommends that you first check with your child's pediatrician to see if they are able to vaccinate. However, there are other options available if you're not able to get into your pediatrician for an appointment. Many local pharmacies are offering appointments as well as our Public Health clinics. Learn more about vaccines for children aged 6 months to under 5 years.
  • As part of Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway's MetroForward >> initiative, the City of Madison has teamed up for the second year with the Madison Metropolitan School District to distribute a summer Metro Transit pass to ALL middle and high school students, providing a safe and easily accessible way to navigate our community this summer. Details can be found here.
