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.

Bicentennial Barn Project

April 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - May 23, 2017 @ 4:30 pm


Now through the end of June the 2016 Bicentennial Barn Project is on display at the Jefferson Co. Historical Society’s History Center.  Working in conjunction with Indiana Landmarks, Dorrel Harrison has created a variety of barn plaques crafted from weathered barn board. “I take barn board that is going to be thrown away or burned and I redeem it-a second chance, a new life. Sometimes it is the actual wood from the barn that I use to handcraft the plaque.”


Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-4:30 pm


April 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am
