Every year since 1983, the Taste of Madison takes place in Capitol Square in the heart of downtown Madison.

On Saturday and Sunday over Labor Day weekend, over 250,000 people descend on the Capitol to enjoy food, drink, live music, entertainment, and fun for all ages.

Best of all, the entire two-day event is free! Plus, over $60,000 is raised for local non-profit and charitable organizations.

Pro Tip: Stay in the center of it all at The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club! Skip the drive and make a weekend of it. Book your stay today while availability lasts!
