Summer Events Are Here!

One of the reasons people love to call Madison and the surrounding Dane County area home, is that there is always something to do! Madison is a “community driven” city and not a moment of our precious summer weather is wasted. On any given weekend during the warmer months, you can find a festival or family-friendly event to get you out and about. We’ve provided a list of event highlights for the coming months, but this is by no means an all-inclusive list. If you’re looking for something to do – whether it’s a fitness boot camp or a cupcake tasting – check out Destination Madison for all of the area happenings.

We hope you enjoy our warmer months ahead, and that your summer is filled with fun and adventure. Please remember us if your adventures happen lead you to a new home. We’d love nothing more than to help you find a bigger back yard, a screen porch to relax on, or maybe a new home in one of the neighborhoods you discovered while adventuring!
