Various days & times

Spice up your winter with a concert in Olbrich's Evjue Commons. Special concerts for kids, dance concerts, and a variety of musical genres are featured. Seating is provided.


Summer Concert Series arrow

June - August

Tuesdays, 7 p.m.

Enjoy your summer evenings with a concert on the Great Lawn of Olbrich's outdoor gardens. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, pack a picnic, or purchase hotdogs and brats at the Gardens from the Madison East Kiwanis. Picnics are allowed in the Gardens for Tuesday concerts only.

In case of rain, concerts will be held indoors, and the Kiwanis brat and hotdog stand will not be available. We will post the decision for an indoor/outdoor concert on our Web site after 3 pm on the days of the concert if the weather is questionable.

Warm up your Sundays in December with festive holiday music during Olbrich's Holiday Concert Series. Don't forget to check out Olbrich's Holiday Express while you're here! Seating is provided.
