This year offers five stages – including folk, world music, electronica by Willy St. Beats, a kid’s area, and a new stage for karaoke on Saturday night! On Sunday morning, the crowd-favorite bubble mobile will start the parade at 11am! In addition- the fair will kick off with an arts market hosted by Dane Arts Buy Local, with over 35+ visual artists participating at 200 S. Brearly. Catch this unique addition to the fair on Friday Sept. 16, 4-8pm, and then again Saturday morning 10am-3pm. The Willy Street Fair is Madison’s most iconic street festival. For more than 44 years it has benefited the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center and Commonwealth Development.
