2017 Picnic in the Park

The Madison Parks Foundation in partnership with Event Essentials proudly presents Picnic in the Park.  On October 28, 2017, step back in time for an elegant evening celebrating the 123-year history and legacy of our Madison Parks featuring the culinary talents of local greats Jonny Hunter and other recognized area chefs.

On October 28, 2017 join us in celebrating 123 years of Madison’s crown jewels – its amazing parks as well as the inspirational individuals who helped create them; visionaries like John Olin, Daniel Tenney, William Vilas, Thomas Brittingham and Edward Owen.  Their efforts, leadership and support have given us places like Tenney Park, Vilas Park, Brittingham Park and Owen Conservancy – places that define our great city, places that brought pleasure to our grandparents and will someday bring pleasure to our grandchildren.

Step back in time and enjoy this elegant evening at Hoyt Park with fine food and drink and historical presentation.  Space is limited to 300 people – Register Early!

If you have any questions, please call the Madison Parks Foundation at 608.266.4339 or email us.
