Events

Check out the Parks Division Event Calendar for more fun activities in parks around Madison.

  • Madison Public Library Is Hosting Storytelling Events for Kids. From August 8 to August 20 across different libraries, the Madison Public Library We Read program is offering a chance to share stories in a unique way. For two weeks, each library will have workshops and/or self-directed activities for kids and families to enjoy. Activities include Bubbler-led making opportunities like creating your own digital comic or making a stop-motion animated video using iMovie. Bubbler Media Instructor Rob Franklin (Rob Dz) will also lead interactive spoken word poetry workshops and Alexis Dean, the Bubbler in the Neighborhood artist at Meadowridge Library, will lead a poetry-inspired storytelling session, as well. See this link for dates and times for each library and what activities are at which library.
  • Dane Dances! 2022 "A Season of Celebration" Dane Dances! is a family friendly event on the stunning Monona Terrace rooftop EVERY FRIDAY EVENING IN AUGUST. The much-anticipated summer music series is a great way to get down and dance with your friends, coworkers, or family. The rooftop gets shaking as the sun sets against the iconic Wisconsin State Capitol with the breeze of Lake Monona at your back while you dance. Feel free to bring a blanket, chair and picnic basket; seating on the rooftop is limited. Sorry, carry-in alcohol is prohibited. Dane Dances! promotes inclusivity with a fun night of music and dancing to music and bands for all ages.

  • Be a Volunteer Fall Food Cart Reviewer! The annual Food Cart Review will run September 12 - October 8, 2022, and you can apply to be one of the reviewers!  This review will determine which food carts will be allowed to vend in Downtown Madison from April 15, 2023 - April 14, 2024. Application deadline is Friday, August 19 at 4p.  You will be notified if you have been accepted as a reviewer by August 25th. Reviewers are required to visit at minimum 80% of the food carts in the review.  In 2019 we had 59 carts participate.  During the Review, you must be available 3-4 of the Saturday's between 9a-1p and be able to get Downtown during the week over the lunch hour (11a-2p).  All Reviewers are required to take a mandatory virtual training on Tuesday, August 30, from 6p-7p.  A love for food, small businesses and the vibrancy of our city is a plus!
