7.3-6.14: Catfish River Music Festival, Stoughton Opera House. Amazing live music on multiple stages -- just a hop, skip, and jump down the road in Stoughton.
7.10-13.14: La Fete de Marquette, Madison Central Park. If you've never been to this annual Bastille Day celebration, mark your calendars now. One of the best summer events on the near-east side!
7.12-13.14: Art Fair on the Square, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. An annual favorite! And a great way to get a jump-start on holiday gifts (if you can bring yourself to even think about December right now.)
