“A Madison institution”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Music, beer, picnic and friends all in the center of town. All this coupled with a wisconsin summers evening and the sight of the capitol building's reflection on neighboring office building.

“Great experience, but get there early”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Concerts on the square are one of the best experiences to take in in Madison during the summer time. Plan to get there early or have someone set out your blanket early to find a good spot on the grass. Most people go to sip some wine, chat, enjoy the weather and the restaraunts on the square.

“Where Madison hangs out on Wednesday evenings,”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Bring a blanket, a picnic, sit in an outdoor café or at "the tables" up front. On the lawn of one of the prettiest capitol buildings in the world, listen to music, people watch, babies, grandma's - everyone comes at least once. Free and fun, and you can enjoy the shade of the trees, the statues, the building and the great plantings. Another great thing to do for free in Madison which iswhy we live here even it does get so cold 20 degrees seems warm.

Reviewed January 7, 2014

The concerts are fantastic, but despite numerous signs posted the audience needs to talk during the concert.

“Wonderfull night out.”

This is an enjoyable event the whole family can attend. Bring a lunch or snack, or purchase something available from the many vendors.
