2017 Picnic in the Park photos

On October 28, 2017, the Madison Parks Foundation and Event Essentials partnered to host the second annual “Picnic in the Park” at Hoyt Park.

This historically-themed evening was expertly crafted by Event Essentials featuring valet parking, signature cocktails, historical photos and stories and a four-course dinner.

The amazing food was skillfully created by locally renowned chefs, Jonny Hunter of Forequarter and Phillip Hurley and John Gadau of Sardine. Their love of food and parks shined through at this event.
