Labor Day on the Terrace

  • mp specialevent welcomeback LaborDay 19 05312
  • Terrace Daytime Photos SM 16

Come to the Terrace on Labor Day for a full day of paddling, climbing, music, games, food samples & more!

Wheelhouse Art Studios will be hosting this year's Terrace Paintacular and Lakeside Cinema will feature Disney Pixar's "Up" in the evening. 

What's a Paintacular? It's Madison's Largest Paint Night! We provide the canvas, the paints and some instruction - you create a Terrace sunset painting (or whatever moves you).

Lakeside Cinema will cap off the night with Pixar's Up (2009).  There's no better place to hang out and catch a film than beside Lake Mendota on the Memorial Union Terrace.  Start the new semester with this weekly tradition. 

Did you know that as a UW-Madison student you are automatically a Wisconsin Union member?  And we're always looking for students to join one of our planning committees, so be sure to stop by the information tables at welcome weekend events hosted by Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) to find out how you can get involved.
