Madison’s original outdoor music festival, Orton Park Festival, has been entertaining the community for over 50 years.

This year was no different with four days of food provided by local vendors, craft beer, cider, and wine tents, music, and performances.

Thursday kicked off with Family Night and Cycropia Aerial Dance’s first performance of the weekend, delighting children and adults alike. Games and musical acts kept guests entertained.

The annual Marquette Neighborhood Association auction also made an appearance this year.

The last day of the festival began with a “Jazzy Brunch” made possible by Fuegos restaurant, Cargo Coffee, Marquette Neighborhood local bakers, with music stylings provided by Bill Roberts Combo.
