Downtown Ambassadors: Just Ask!

When you're visiting Downtown Madison, chances are you'll have a few questions. Our Information Ambassadors work as concierges, ready to offer maps, downtown directions, event information, shopping and dining suggestions and a friendly smile.

Wearing their signature green shirts, Information Ambassadors can be found at the Downtown Madison Visitor Center seven days a week year-round, in an information booth on the Capitol Square during the warmer months, on a trolley during the holiday season and at special events throughout the year.
