Expect big crowds and a smaller farmers’ market for this weekend’s “Art Fair on the Square”
MADISON, Wis. — For the only Saturday this Farmers’ Market season, you won’t find the typical Dane County Farmers’ market vendors along the Square. But that doesn’t mean it will be any less busy.
200,000 people are expected at this year’s “Art Fair on the Square.”
The event has been one of the most popular events in Madison for more than 60 years.
Most art forms are represented among the nearly 500 artists, including ceramics, fiber arts, photography, sculpture, and jewelry, in addition to the traditional paint and print media.
The event is organized by the Madison Metropolitan Museum of Contemporary Art and serves as its primary fundraiser.
“Art Fair on the Square” runs from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday, July 13 and again on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
If you’re craving even more art, “Art Fair off the Square” is held along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., the stretch of road leading to the Monona Terrace, this weekend.
For customers who still want their farmers’ market fix, they can head to Breese Stevens Field, where a limited number of vendors will be selling during usual market hours, from 7 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
