Held each year over Labor Day weekend, Taste of Madison showcases more than 80 local restaurants, 20 beverage stands and three entertainment stages. The participating restaurants sell a vast variety of unique and traditional dishes to the estimated 250,000 attendees over the two-day period. And every food item is reasonably priced from $1 to $4. Admission to the event – which includes hours and hours of live entertainment – is free and open to the public.
The Taste of Madison is the flagship event of Madison Festivals, Inc. and benefits many local charities. The city of Madison is not directly involved with the event, and all expenses - including rental of the Square, police, security, etc. - are paid for by Madison Festivals. Please abide by the rules we establish, especially the "NO PET" and "NO CARRY INS" policies.
Madison Festivals, Inc. produces and develops events in the greater Madison community, such as Taste of Madison and Madison Marathon. These events enhance the quality of life for residents, showcase the area to visitors, and provide assistance to local charitable organizations.
