Savoring the Remaining Weeks of Terrace Season 2023

Terrace season. A beautiful time of the year during which our outdoor, lakeside space the Memorial Union Terrace fills with the sounds of our free, live music, the laughter of patrons enjoying our rentable kayaks and canoes, conversations among family members as they enjoy art-making, and the many reactions to our free film showings with their wide-ranging genres. 

Terrace season is a brief time, usually running from mid-April to mid-October (We have not shared a closing date yet for this year.), but the fun, the memory-making, the laughter…it all continues on when Terrace season ends with most events moving indoors to our buildings Memorial Union and Union South. It’s not over yet, though. So we’ve curated a list of suggested events and activities to help you make the most of remaining Terrace season 2023. 

  • Open Mic Nights each Wednesday, 7-9 p.m. (continues indoors at der Rathskeller in Memorial Union when the Terrace closes)
  • Make a custom bookmark – You can purchase an art kit from our art destination Wheelhouse Studios and make your own bookmark at the Terrace. 
  • Enjoy dinner and a theater show. The Wisconsin Union Theater has a long history of predicting what’s next now in its programming. Enjoy a delicious dinner from one of our on-site restaurants, and then check out a jazz, classical music, global music or dance performance.
  • Enjoy a staycation in a hotel room overlooking the Terrace and Lake Mendota. We have hotel rooms on-site at Memorial Union and nearby at Union South that are the perfect downtown Madison getaway. Enjoy our dining options downstairs, on-site entertainment and activities and gorgeous settings. 

Your Terrace chair awaits. And when the Terrace chairs go away for their winter hibernation, we have some cozy indoor spots for you, too. We look forward to your next visit.
