Things to do in Madison, WI: Feb. 28-March 6

Hi there,

Every week, I try to find between 30 and 60 events for you to consider checking out. I'm just one person, so there's no way I can get to everything. Instead, I try to focus on events that are unique and local. Bonus points for anything free!

But if you're consistently finding there's nothing that's interesting to you in these posts, reply and let me know. Maybe I need to recalibrate a bit or check some other sources.

Wondering what that 🟠 means?
