Madison Magazine has served more than 107,000 readers during its run of more than 30 years with award-winning coverage of Madison lifestyles, arts, dining, health, business, entertainment, and local politics. Adding to the experience is the gloss of the magazine's design, which harmoniously embraces the professionally written content like a koala mollycoddling a eucalyptus tree for the first time. Madison Magazine also keeps readers updated on the latest events with an annual city guide, dining guide, and tech guide. In addition to reporting on local events, the magazine has engaged in them, having proudly sponsored the Madison Food & Wine Show, Madison Restaurant Week, and Madison Spa & Salon Week. A year's worth of this nationally acclaimed magazine will not only keep you in the know, it can be used as a weapon against boredom, pesky insects, and melee attacks from aggressive MP3 devices.
Each month, a glossy new issue of Madison Magazine arrives in the mailboxes of readers, sharing local stories and events such as a profile of a local band instructor or an upcoming ballet folklórico performance. For nearly 35 years, the award-winning publication has filled pages with articles and photographs showcasing the Madison area’s restaurants, businesses, and cultural life. The arts and entertainment section highlights events such as the Madison World Music Festival, and food and dining articles explore new barbecue spots and share recipes that highlight local and seasonal ingredients. In addition to regularly reserving space for subjects such as health and habitat, the magazine turns out once-a-year creations, such as an annual food lover's issue and a Best of Madison Readers’ Poll that directs readers toward comfortable coffeehouses and talented theater companies.
