“A nice place for a tumbling event”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Easy to get around in and well organized. A week parking pass would be nice to make available to those attending events all week long.

“Good venue to catch a concert”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

I've been to the Alliant for several concerts and the Horse fair in the spring. This venue is pretty large for Madison. Most shows have general admission on the floor, which is the way to go. The seats can be small and the incline of the stairs is very steep. (I feel like I could fall over and seriously injure myself when I'm up there.) There are snacks and alcoholic beverages available, but you must drink your concert beer in a roped off area instead of taking it with you. There is plenty of parking for a small fee.
