We know how to throw a party! We’ve been doing this since 1809….there is ALWAYS something to do when you come to Madison. There are home tours, music events, garden tours, holiday events, parades, arts/crafts shows, 5Ks, car shows, food & wine tastings, and beer on tap – just to name a few.

Our largest events include Madison River Jam (formerly RiverRoots), Madison Regatta, Madison Ribberfest BBQ & Blues, Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art, Soup, Stew, Chili & Brew Festival, Nights Before Christmas Candlelight Tour of Homes, and Wonderland in the Park.

CANCELLED – Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art

September 26 @ 10:00 am - September 27 @ 5:00 pm

Our committee has continued to monitor the circumstances surrounding COVID-19. The health and safety of our artists, staff, volunteers and our community is our first priority, therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we have sadly reached a decision to cancel the 2020 Madison Chautauqua. Our committee is dedicated to our beloved festival and is eager to plan for 2021 and our 50th year celebration!! 🎉
All artists will receive a full refund for booth fees. Jurying will roll over to 2021. Please contact info@madisonchautauqua.com for any questions or concerns.
