Madison Winter Festival (Madison)

Every year, Madison Winter Festival attracts more than 20,000 spectators, winter enthusiasts, and athletes. Over ninety truckloads of snow will transform the Capitol Square into a race and recreational venue the weekend of February 13-14. The cross country ski race course will go the entire way around the square as it did during the festival's inaugural year in 2005. The inside lanes of the Square will be closed off for family oriented activities such as: snow and ice sculpting, sled hill rides, snowshoeing, winter-themed museum tours and much more! Other fan favorites scheduled throughout the weekend include the Frosty 5K Run & Walk, Fat Bike, Snowshoe and Skijoring races, Frosty 1.5 Mile Dog Jog, Kids’ Fun Run and other fun and festive outdoor activities. The Festival concludes at 4:00pm on Sunday, February 14th.
