Enjoying Concerts on the Square at the feet of the State Capitol building is a rite of summer in Madison. The concerts are a relaxing and perfect way to enjoy a summer evening. Madison is still a great combination of big city and small town...More
Ventured out of my hotel when I hear music coming from the Capital lawn just down the street. Amazing FREE tribute to Journey and Queen. People having picnics, food trucks and fun everywhere you look! Blankets start showing up at 3pm, food starts showing up...More

Free concerts every Wednesday during the summer around the capitol in Madison. This is one of the best experiences you can have of Wisconsin/ the Midwest! Bring a blanket to the capitol early in the day to save a spot. Then come back later with...More
