FAQ

  • What is Madison Kids Expo?

The Madison Kids Expo is a two-day expo dedicated to bringing to light all of the kid-related activities and businesses in the Madison area. It’s the perfect opportunity for families to come out and learn, explore + play together!


  • Who attends The Madison Kids Expo?  

Anyone who wants to experience a day focused on everything kids love! Bring your kids for the arts & crafts projects, hands-on activities, demonstrations and more. Plan your next family vacation, your child’s summer camp, and meet with local businesses that are specifically kid-oriented.


  • How much does it cost to attend?

Day-of Admission price is $9 for adults, $7 for kids. However, you may purchase advanced discount tickets and avoid waiting in line to pay.


  • Does a ticket cover both days?

No; each ticket is only good for one day.


  • I bought tickets online and now I can’t go. Will you refund my money?

Unfortunately, tickets are non-refundable. You can transfer them to another person, if you have a friend or family member who wants to go instead!


  • Do I need to bring anything in order for my children to be able to play at the Expo? 

YES!  We recommend socks for all kids who are playing on the inflatables or in the toddler play area.

Also, all children playing on the inflatables must have a completed waiver on file.  To save time at the expo, please download, print and bring THIS WAIVER with you!

Parking is not included. Alliant Energy Center charges $7 (cash only) for every vehicle to park in their lot. We strongly encourage attendees to carpool or use an alternate method such as Madison Metro or a passenger cab service.

Yes! You can ride the Madison Metro bus from any Madison destination and be delivered to the corner of Olin and John Nolen Drive, a 5-minute walk to the front doors of the Alliant Energy Center.
