Madison’s Central Business Improvement District (BID) is back with the Madison Night Market on select summer dates. This year, more than ever, the Downtown Madison businesses are encouraging, inviting, and welcoming the community back downtown. Everyone is invited!

Madison is famous for great shopping, amazing food and a talented art scene and now these three community assets have come together again for a unique urban experience. The Madison Night Market is a celebration of Madison’s unique and inspiring creative culture. Vendors showcase handmade products, local art, artisan gifts, and prepackaged foods. The event includes live music, special visiting food carts and pop-up restaurant experiences.

Held the 2nd Thursday of the month, more than 7,000 attendees come downtown each market. The remaining 2022 dates are 8/11 and 9/8. From 4 – 8pm everyone is invited to come celebrate all things Madison. The market will vary from month to month with different vendors and entertainment.
