A parade called “Women’s March on Madison” is planned for Saturday, January 21st in downtown Madison.  The parade will start at Library Mall, 728 State Street, at noon on Saturday.  Participants are then expected to march up State Street to the capitol. 

Although parade participants are required to stay on sidewalks and follow all traffic laws, a large crowd is expected, and Madison Police will close State Street cross streets as necessary to divert traffic around the parade if safety becomes an issue.  The capitol square streets may also need to be closed to traffic due to the size of the crowd.   

Traffic delays should be expected for those driving downtown on Saturday between noon and 3:00 p.m.—especially on Gorham Street and Johnson Street.    

If you have any questions, please direct them to the listed contact person.
