Blue skies, green grass and endless adventures await this spring in Madison, WI! The warmer weather brings everyone outdoors to enjoy perennial favorites like the Dane County Farmers' Market, al fresco dining, and 200 miles of biking and hiking trails. With an events calendar full of opportunities and inspiring itineraries for every interest, it's simple to build a fantastic getaway! 

×Destination Madison’s team are passionate about our mission to inspire a love for Madison, an incredible place we all call home. And we know the health and welfare of the people in our community need to be first and foremost in everyone’s minds during this challenging time.

We are monitoring recommendations from local and national health agencies and we encourage others in the community to do the same. Some of these recommendations have led to events being postponed, reduced in scale or canceled. We care deeply for the amazing people who work at our local hospitality and service businesses, and the impact they feel from these changes. And, we are diligently working with our partners to develop strategies to position our community for a strong rebound. We love Madison. And we know the people who call our community home will get through this together.
