Fifth annual carnival shows lighter side of sustainability

Wisconsin State Journal


Adult Swim events at the Madison Children’s Museum incorporate various themes throughout the year, but one has stuck around for five years running — the Sustainability Sideshow.

The green-themed carnival is a fundraising effort shared between MCM and Sustain Dane and brings topics of sustainability to the forefront of the evening of fun on April 7 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Sustainability Sideshow is a 21 and up event featuring carnival games, themed food, live music, upcycled art and fashion as well as a workshop called FrankenMuppets.

FrankenMuppets involves upcycling stuffed animals, trolls and dolls to construct a one-of-a kind creation. The workshop is an add-on to the event itself and costs an additional $10.

Tickets for Sustainability Sideshow are $12.75 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at
Included with admission are delicacies such as edible insects, cotton candy and a popcorn bar. Other snacks and pizza will also be available for purchase as well as beer, wine and signature cocktails.
