About Maxwell Street Days
For 40 years, Maxwell Street Days has provided bargains, culinary delights and music for more than 30,000 annual attendees. This annual Summer Sidewalk Sale on State Street in downtown Madison, Wis., takes place the 3rd weekend in July. Why is there a "Maxwell Street Days" on State Street? Maxwell Street in Chicago, Ill., was home to a famed outdoor market and "urban bazaar" from 1871 to 1994. In 1975, Martin's, a Madison, Wis., clothing store and tailor shop, founded an outdoor sidewalk sale to showcase the State Street shopping district, starting Madison's very own "Maxwell Street Days" tradition.
Maxwell Street Days is the perfect centerpiece of a summer weekend getaway to Madison, where you can shop 'til you drop, and then relax on the shores of Lakes Mendota and Monona, dine at one of more than 80 downtown restaurants, catch a show at the Overture Center for the Arts, or visit the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art or the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Monona Terrace and Convention Center.
Maxwell Street Days is organized by the Greater State Street Business Association (GSSBA), with support from Madison's Central Business Improvement District (BID).
