Community Events Tickets

Monona Terrace is producing several free and paid events that now require an online 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 online tickets.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

Thursday, November 8

7pm Lecture Hall

Citizen Jane is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Run Time: 93 minutes

7pm – Doors and Bar Open 6:30pm

Since the fall of 2010, Monona Terrace has offered a PechaKucha event. Over the years, there have been some incredible presenters and we thought it was time to bring them back for a night of PechaKucha All-Stars. Join us as we invite veteran presenters back to the stage to share new topics or repeat crowd favorites. This is bound to be a night you won’t want to miss!
