One of the country’s longest-running outdoor music festivals, Orton takes place a few blocks off Williamson St. in the heart of Madison’s east side. This Marquette Neighborhood Association sponsored event is known for great music, an array of terrific vendors from local restaurants and businesses, kids games, an elegant Jazz Brunch, a rather quirky auction, and a magical aerial trapeze performance under one of the park’s great oaks.
This is a very supportive residential area, but please bus, walk or bike to the event if possible. We are very dependent on beverage sales to keep this festival free, so we ask you to refrain from bringing carry-ins. OPF is handicapped-accessible and free to the general public… but not to pets.
