This year there will be another campus wide event taking place on the first weekend in May, which has usually been when only Mifflin Street block party occurred. The Revelry Music and Arts Festival will take place on May 4th from 11am to 4pm. It will be a day long event featuring local art, food, and music along with national headlining musical acts. Revelry has just released its line up on their Facebook page, blog, and twitter. Go look it up, maybe one of your favorite artists or bands will be here!! The event is targeted at UW students with tickets only being $5 Keep checking the Facebook page or blog for updates on the schedule of the day and other additional details.
On this same day the Mifflin Street block party will also be taking place. This is a tradition on campus and numerous students travel to Madison to celebrate as well. Mifflin Street last year was blocked off which allowed the entire street to become a massive party. The Madison police will be on the street to make sure things go well, but make sure you are not drinking on the street unless you are 21!!
Overall Badgers if you’re going to Revelry or Mifflin be safe, enjoy the weather, and have some fun before the cram for finals beginnings!
