Picnic in the Park | Saturday, May 20, 2023 at Burrows Park

Step back in time to a 1950s cocktail club as we re-create the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive's iconic Annual Banquet! These banquets brought private citizens together and sparked the creation of our public parks as we know them today. The tradition continues Saturday, May 20th at Burrows Park in Madison, Wisconsin.

Signature Events

Picnic in the Park is SOLD OUT for this year!

This annual event, presented by Event Essentials, is a celebration of the creation of parks and what initiatives and opportunities are on the horizon.
