UPDATE November 13, 2020:
We are disappointed to announce the City of Madison “A Very Merry Christmas Parade” and “Christmas Festival on Main” are canceled. The lights at the Broadway Fountain will still be illuminated to kick off the season, but the city will not host this year’s “Light Up Madison” event. The Parks Department “Christmas Craft Show” is also canceled.
“This was a difficult decision for us to make, but the health of our community must come first. Unfortunately, as temperatures have dropped, individuals have moved to gathering indoors, and we have seen a spike in our COVID-19 cases, as expected. Due to this spike, our county is currently coded orange per ISDH criteria. Our goal is to “Get Back to Blue”, which is why we believe it is best to cancel these events” said Mayor Bob Courtney.
While the annual holiday events will not be happening, the City of Madison will still be filled with holiday joy including visits from Santa.
After ‘A Very Merry Madison Parade’ join us on Main Street from West to Broadway for the “Christmas on Main Festival” – Carolers, Santa, Reindeer, characters, candy, hot cocoa, and more!
