The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show

  • Presented By: The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show
  • Dates: September 10, 2020 - September 12, 2020
  • Recurrence: Recurring daily
  • Location: Alliant Energy Center

In response to COVID-19, The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show team has made the difficult decision to transition the event into an immersive online experience. The safety of our attendees, vendors, presenters and volunteers is paramount. So, while this decision was difficult, we know it is the right choice.

We will miss seeing you in person. However, we are so excited to bring our quilting community together this fall for a brand-new Great Wisconsin Quilt Show experience! At this time, we are diligently working to transition The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show’s in-person offerings into an easily accessible virtual experience. These virtual offerings will include educational opportunities, shopping options and more.

And, we will still offer our Quilt Contest and Exhibit — virtually! Be sure to visit quiltshow.com/quiltcontest to learn how to enter your quilt. Entries are due June 30.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We will share more details as plans develop and look forward to connecting with you virtually this September!

Experience the ultimate quilting adventure!

For three days, the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall is transformed into a haven for quilters and quilt admirers.
