Madison Night Market expanding to Capitol Square in 2024


The popular Madison Night Market will expand onto the Capitol Square for the 2024 season, Madison’s Central Business Improvement District (BID) announced on Tuesday.

For the first time, the market is expanding to N. Carroll and W. Mifflin Streets on the Capitol Square, in addition to State Street and Gilman Street, welcoming more local artisans and food vendors as the demand for spaces continues to grow.

“We can’t wait to bring the entire community back downtown for the Madison Night Market,” said Matt Tramel, executive director of the Madison Central Business Improvement District (BID), in a statement. “We’re excited to showcase some new food vendors and local artisans – along with community favorites – and we’re building a great line-up of live music and entertainment. There’s no better place than downtown Madison to shop, dine and enjoy everything that makes it such a unique and welcoming venue.”

The Madison Night Market will kick off on Thursday, May 9, 5-9 p.m.  Other market dates will include June 13, August 8, September 12, and October 17. This year’s featured artist for the Madison Night Market is local artist Stephanie Barenz. Her art explores how our surroundings shape our internal landscapes.

The full list of vendors, musicians, and food trucks will be announced later in April.
