In 1894, John Olin and a visionary group of private citizens created the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association to develop scenic drives and parks around the city.
On October 22nd, Event Essentials and the Madison Parks Foundation proudly present “Picnic in the Park,” on Tenney Park Island. Join us as we celebrate the legacy of our most notable parks. Learn about the history and tales of the people and places that helped shape our great city.
This celebration is an Edwardian-themed soiree, featuring dinner prepared by Tory Miller of L’etoile and Jonny Hunter from the Underground Food Collective while members of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra perform music of the era, all under an elegantly adorned, heated tent.
Just 300 tickets are available and all proceeds benefit the Madison Parks Foundation.
