Monona Terrace is producing several free and paid events that now require an Eventbrite ticket. We have implemented this new system to allow for better communication with our customers, and to help us better estimate crowd size to ensure the comfort and safety of all patrons. Events that do not require a ticket can be found on our website here.

Here is a list of current, upcoming events that require Eventbrite tickets.
