Monona Community Festival • July 3 & 4

The Monona Community Festival is an annual event to celebrate our country’s birthday with great food, great friends, and of course great fireworks! Over the two day festival, July 3rd & 4th, we have several events and activities for the whole family!

Enjoy hours of live music with no cover charge, including the Kids from Wisconsin and our evening headliners Chameleon on July 3rd and Blue Olives on July 4th.

There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy at the festival, from our Art Fair and Car Show, to the Keg Toss Tournament, Hole-in-One Contest, and of course the Wisconsin Wife Carrying Championship Race. We have fun for the whole family as well with our Kids & Family Activities plus our Carnival.
