AtwoodFest is the pinnacle of summer on the East Side of Madison. Live music, local food and beer, and a little something for everyone, including a fantastic lineup of local and regional bands playing roots, blues, and funk, and, of course!, Modern Talisman selling beautiful jewelry and MORE, alongside other local vendors.
Close down the summer festival season at the Willy Street Fair, Madison’s quintessential festival modeled after the huge street fairs of the '60s and '70s. The Fair features five stages of entertainment, nearly 150 vendors, food and family fun. Modern Talisman will be there all day Sunday purveying our unique mix of jewelry and international oddities will be there all day Saturday.
Join Modern Talisman at McPike Park (formerly Central Park) on Saturday, June 22nd and Sunday, June 23rd. We will have a large selection of goods from the store for purchase and will be basking in the joy that is summer festival season here in Madison! (There may be dancing in the booth, just sayin’…) Please note: Unfortunately we aren’t able to split ourselves in two so the the store will be closed both days. Mention you saw this announcement on the website and receive 10% off any purchase you make at the fest. We’re hoping to see many of you there!
Modern Talisman is delighted to kick off the summer season by throwing open our doors as proud participants in Gallery Night. Showcasing the city's vibrant arts community, Gallery Night is a long-time Madison tradition. Organized each spring and fall by MMoCA, Gallery Night offers art lovers and art novices alike an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of exhibitions, opening receptions, special events, and demonstrations at venues throughout the city. Dozens of venues, including other Schenks Corners neighbors, will open their doors to invite the public in to see and shop for original artwork. Gallery Night is held from 5-9 pm. Stop by for a glass of wine!
