Orton Park Festival: August 24-27, 2017

August 24-27, 2017 (Facebook page)

The 52nd Annual Orton Park Festival is fast approaching! We are excited to present even more fantastic local talent, as well as some incredibly talented touring groups. 

As usual, we will kick things off on Thursday evening with Family Night, featuring pizza, ice cream, and the flying trapezes of Cycropia Aerial Dance. 

The Main Stage sounds off on Friday night with fun tunes for all ages.

Saturday will bring a host of performances varying greatly in style from Americana to world rhythms to full out rock and roll. 

Sunday morning, as is tradition, we’ll have a jazz brunch under the oaks at 9 am. The Main Stage will again gear up at noon and carry us through the afternoon.

Portions of this event will be simulcast by WORT (audio).  Check our Facebook page for updates.

Don’t forget to bid on some great auction items! As always, the event is FREE – but please, no dogs or carry-ins.

The festival takes place at beautiful Orton Park on the near-eastside of Madison.
