A message from Barb Weeks, Show Chair

     Join us Under the Big Top for a week of button-related exhibits, programs, work­shops, food, fun and friends. It all kicks off Monday night with an evening of circus snacks - clowns - music - a spe­cial, circus-themed button program and balloon popping for prizes! In addition, we will have two limited-quantity movable show-themed buttons available for sale, and you won't want to miss out on those!

     Come early and enjoy some of the attractions the Madison area has to offer, such as the Olbrich Botanical Gardens or the Chazen Museum of Art. If you have a little more time, just 45 minutes from the hotel, you can walk the grounds of the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin in Spring Green or the offbeat House on the Rock. Closer to the hotel in Middle­ton, take advantage of beautiful hiking and biking trails in the Pheasant Branch Conservancy, hop the free trolley to downtown Middleton and enjoy the many restaurants and shopping options available or duck into the quirky National Mustard Museum.
