Events

Alumni Park is always free to visit and the park will also feature a variety of Wisconsin Alumni Association and UW-Madison programs and events including festivals, arts and cultural programs, outdoor lectures, and workshops.

We invite you to also visit One Alumni Place on your way to or from an event. It offers reception and visitor services, giving alumni a spot where they can touch down on their arrival at the UW and learn about what’s going on around campus.

Events are subject to change due to weather.
