Picnic in the Park: POSTPONED UNTIL MAY 2022

Picnic in the Park logo

Every year, we look forward to connecting with you at our annual Picnic in the Park event that supports our amazing Madison Parks! With the recent rise in COVID cases in the county and in the interest of public safety, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event until the May 21, 2022.

With Picnic in the Park, Event Essentials strives to create more than an event, but rather an experience. This one-of-a-kind event has taken us from Tenney Park in its inaugural year, to Hoyt Park, to Olbrich Park, to Vilas Park and now to Olin Park for the 5th Annual Picnic in the Park.

Each year, the event is set with a historical theme. This year we celebrate the 1940's and themed attire is encouraged.

We are excited and thankful to partner with several local area chefs for a delectable feast of upscale farm-to-table cuisine paired with wine and cocktails.

Live music of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra as well as a big band performance from The Sax Section of the Neophonic Orchestra playing songs of the era.

Please order your tickets now and save the date!
