Madison Street Festival to be held Saturday

The historical setting of downtown Madison has provided the ideal backdrop for the Madison Street Festival for 33 years. This annual event welcomes more than 13,000 visitors and is a local tradition for kicking-off the fall season.

The 34rd Annual Madison Street Festival will carry on its rich tradition this Saturday, Oct. 4.

The Madison Street Festival has always had a great tradition of welcoming an array of artists, craftsmen, demonstrators and entertainers, but over the past couple of years the event has expanded drastically.

The Madison Street Festival includes a musical performances, hands-on children’s activities, dozens of vendor booths, demonstration, great food and more.

Like past festivals, this year the fun will begin with a parade through downtown Madison. It will begin at 9 a.m. Any group of individual is invited to participate for free.

This year’s Street Festival will include performance stages that will feature some of the best in local entertainment.

An expanded Children’s Area welcomes plenty of activities and rides for the kids.

Vets with Vettes will be hosting an open Car and Bike Show again this year.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Debbie Overcash, the festival’s president. “There are so many attractions this year.

“Join us and experience it all,” Overcash continued.

Free parking and shuttle service from Madison City Schools Stadium on Celtic is provided for all.
Thanks to a committee of hard-working volunteers and local businesses who help sponsor this event, profits are invested back into the community through grants to non-profit organizations, schools, and community groups.

The festival is more than just a fun event. It also helps to raise money for various organizations in Madison.
