This year marks Madison’s 17th Annual Pancake Festival, a two–day event filled with food and
fun activities. The nonprofit festival, sponsored by the Betterment Association of the Madison
Area and the Madison Jaycees, raises proceeds that go toward local causes from scholarships to
city improvement. The purchase of a pancake plate covers endless refills and cost of admission.
Browse the booths – Shop Madison’s finest selection of arts & crafts at more than
100 booths. Local artists display their latest wares, from paintings of the picturesque
town to contemporary mixed media. Craft highlights include the popular face–
painting station and an hourly origami–folding demonstration. Booths manned by
local clubs and residents offer specialty foods, such as Madison’s famous pancake pie.
Sing along – Country music is the pancake festival’s unofficial anthem. Classic
country tunes play throughout both days. This year, Madison is proud to welcome
Country and Western artist Lionel Cartwright to perform live on Sunday afternoon
from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Cartwright will perform all of his most popular hits, opening
with his latest single, “I Left My Heart in Madison.”
Enjoy the rides – Visitors may purchase additional tickets for the festival’s family–
friendly rides. Popular attractions include the Ferris wheel and merry–go–round.
Children may also enjoy the whimsical Pancake Castle Moon Bounce.
Enter to win – This year’s ticket raffle includes the following prizes: a 16–foot boat,
a trailer, and a 45 HP outboard motor.
Take clogging lessons – Festival regulars are familiar with Madison’s favorite folk
dance. Beginners and clogging aficionados alike can watch the town’s finest
performers demonstrate the basic steps. Visitors can also stop by the clogging booth
to purchase a pair of handmade clogs.
