Science on the Square/Madison Night Market Fusion

Thursday10/195:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for one fantastic night that blends science with downtown Madison businesses!

Back for its sixth year, the ever-popular Science on the Square event is again fusing with the Madison Night Market to create a unique way to explore hands-on science activities while also supporting local businesses and vendors. This year, in celebration of the many milestone anniversaries happening around our state, we are proud to focus on time and its influence on science, art and technology.

At Science on the Square, outdoor STEM-themed activities will mix with Madison Night Market vendor tents throughout State Street. Indoor locations will showcase interesting exhibits, talks, or menu/product specials for you to check out as well. Learn more about the science that surrounds us every day while exploring downtown Madison. Be sure to stop by the top of State Street (near the capitol) to see physics demonstrations, rock out with iHeart Radio/Madison Z104 Host Jena, and create a fun glowing design on a giant Science Brite. Then make your way down to Lisa Link Peace Park (400 block) for live music with Kat and the Hurricane (5p.m.) and Elements (7p.m.)!

The Wisconsin Science Festival and Madison’s Central Business Improvement District are proud to bring you an event you won’t want to miss. Join us in downtown Madison between 5 and 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, for fun for all ages!
