where: Good Neighbor Festival Grounds (7420 North Ave. Middleton, WI 53562)
what: Since 1964, Good Neighbor Festival has been bringing the Middleton community together. Over the past 50 years, this festival has changed a lot. The music sounds different. There are more midway rides. The city of Middleton is a bigger place than it once was.

But, through the years, some things have never changed. Good Neighbor Festival is still family fun, good music, great food and the good neighbor ethic. And it always will be.

Good Neighbor Festival grows out of the Middleton community. As the major fundraiser of the year for Middleton’s non-profit organizations, the event supports charities and worthy causes throughout the Middleton area. Event organizers continue to hope that visitors to Good Neighbor Festival attend not only to have a good time, but also to support the Middleton organizations that help our neighbors most in need.
