Madison offers a variety of things to do before and after the conference sessions. One of the most popular warm weather traditions in Madison and the largest producer-only market in the US is the weekly Farmers’ Market located on the capitol square. Open at 6am, this is a must see before the Saturday conference sessions.

Within blocks of many of the conference hotels and one block from Thursday night’s dinner reception at Memorial Union is the iconic State Street. After checking out the State Street shops and restaurants, take time to stop by and tour the beautiful Wisconsin State Capitol. Tour the Capitol on your own or by guided tour to experience this stunning icon.
