Madison Art Fair Off the Square


  • Off the Capital Square Madison, Wisconsin (Midwest) (map)

The 39th Annual Art Fair Off the Square is one of two juried fairs sponsored and produced by the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople, Inc. (WAAC), a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation formed to promote and create contact between Wisconsin artists and craftspeople and the public. WAAC takes pride in having been created and operated by the artists themselves.  Along with providing a market for exhibitors, we continue to educate the public about art and provide important one-to-one interaction between artist and buyer.  The Art Fair Off the Square runs concurrently with the Art Fair on the Square.  More than 200,000 people are expected to visit downtown Madison during this two-day celebration of visual art, which has become a highlight of the summer season. The Art Fair Off the Square will be comprised of approximately 130 artist spaces.
