End of Summer Events You Don’t Want to Miss

End of Summer Events You Don’t Want to Miss

Who else is flabbergasted at the fact that it’s already August?! We can’t be alone. August-September are such special months. The two months that are considered the end of summer. With the weather still warm and fall on the horizon, don’t miss your chance to head to some super cool events before the school year begins - or before it gets crazy busy!

Something we love so deeply about Dane County is how our community really takes advantage of the summer months. We are a community that loves to do all of the things, especially when our winters are so lengthy.

It can be hard to keep track of all the amazing events that happen throughout Dane County so we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites :) Many right here in Stoughton!


Madison Night Market (VINNY EVENT) - August 19 @ 4pm-9pm - Downtown Madison

Madison Night Market is a celebration of Madison’s unique and inspiring creative culture. Vendors showcase handmade products, local art, artisan gifts, prepackaged foods and fresh produce. The event includes live music, artists, special visiting food carts and pop-up restaurant experiences.

We’ve been attending Madison Night Market since they began and it’s one of our favorites to attend with Vinny! We will be sharing our spot location as we inch closer to the event.

Coffee Break Festival - August 21 @ 9am-3pm - Stoughton, WI

Way back in 1880 Stoughton's Coffee Street was having daily coffee breaks for coffee. The citizenry being 80% Norwegian (100% on Coffee Street) just had to fit in some time of day to send a batch of coffee through their system between meals. With these chores done and a hot pot of coffee constantly on the stove, what was more natural than to have a cup? So began today's coffee break - a few minutes to relax and refresh with coffee.

This event is free with the option to purchase a mug for coffee tasting! GG will have specials in our shop for the event.


Friends Fall Event - MarketPlace Drive In (VINNY EVENT) - September 10 @ 5pm - Madison Mallards Ballpark

This super fun “Drive In” event will feature the movie “Mamma Mia!” with food and beverage packages, a wine pull, online auction, marketplace, swag bags and service by volunteer “carhops”. Proceeds from the event will benefit programs and services for women undergoing treatment for cancer at the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
