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 River Jam Music Festival
Madison River Jam looking ahead to 2021
Dear loyal RiverRoots Fans,
You have been anxiously awaiting information about this event. As some of you may have heard this event is being rebranded and renamed 𝑴𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒐𝒏 𝑹𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝑱𝒂𝒎. Although this is considered a new event, we are hopeful to honor the RiverRoots vibe, and continue to celebrate jammin’ on the Riverfront. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and government guidelines on public gatherings and crowds, Madison River Jam will have to wait until June 2021. We are very much looking forward to continuing this event, held the second weekend in June!
