“There is something marvelous and dreamlike about the Willy Street Fair— for the make-believe seems real.”Isthmus
“A hip dose of Madison.”Chicago Tribune
“Children…traipse about happy, in an environment of camaraderie and splendor, removed from the digital grind of video games and the judgment of schoolyard bullies. They can be who they want to be and indulge in the imagination.”Isthmus
