Event Essentials Presents:

2023 Picnic in the Park – SOLD OUT

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 .

This signature event features an expertly crafted food & drinks, as well as live music to help us celebrate 128 years of Madison Parks! Ticket costs go back into supporting our parks and programming — so get yours today!
