One of the Midwest's most popular and highly regarded outdoor celebrations of the arts returned to the Capitol Square July 12 and 13, 2014 as MMoCA presented the 56th annual Art Fair on the Square. With its mix of music, entertainment, and outdoor dining, as well as more than 450 artists exhibiting paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, jewelry, handmade clothing and accessories, and fine craft, the fair drew nearly 200,000 visitors to Madison's Capitol Square. 

The 2015 fair will take place on Saturday, July 11 (9 am–6 pm) and Sunday, July 12 (10 am–5 pm).
