We’ll be the first to admit that fall is our favorite season of the year. The crisp air, football, pumpkin spice everything… what’s not to love?
We’ve put together a list of some great fall activities that are happening in the Madison area to get you in the autumn mood. Here are some of our favorites:
Wisconsin Badgers Sporting Events
Fall brings back popular sports to the UW-Madison campus including football and women’s volleyball. Both sports are held in historic venues (Camp Randall and the UW Field House) and ignite a passion for Madtown that you will never forget!

Beer is good any season in Wisconsin, but there’s something special about celebrating Oktoberfest like the German’s do at Breese Stevens Field. Enjoy over 50 craft brewers, artisanal sausages and cheeses, and live music.
Event takes place on Saturday, September 24th from 3-7pm. Tickets are $40.
Family Fun on the Farm
Fall is a great time to spend the day outdoors picking delicious apples, taking in the beautiful colors, and enjoying a hayride with the whole family. There are many great farms in the Madison area that all offer apple and pumpkin picking as well as other fun family events.
Crackle Fire & Froth
If you haven’t checked out Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, you are truly missing out. Come and dance the fall night away in the gardens with live music, savor amazing food provided by Food Fight restaurants, and sip on local Wisconsin brews.
