By popular demand, the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium’s Strollin’ series is returning to Downtown Middleton on Friday evening, September 7th, 2018. This jazz mini-fest will feature performances by fourteen bands presenting six hours of continuous and stylistically diverse live music at eight indoor and outdoor venues in Middleton’s “walkable” downtown area east and west of Parmenter Street and south of University Avenue. Now in its fourth year, this popular “jazz stroll” series features a staggered performance schedule that makes it easy for attendees to stroll from venue to venue and sample many different musical styles.
In addition, this year the Middleton Arts Committee is sponsoring a Pop-Up Art Walk in collaboration with the Strollin’ Middleton Jazz Festival. The Art Walk will highlight local artists displaying and selling their work. Locations will be indicated by large red balloons outside of the businesses that are hosting artists.
