Step back in time to celebrate the 123-year history of Madison’s parks.
 
Enjoy an elegant evening inspired by the recreation of a turn-of-the-century tradition contributing to the private creation of our public parks.

This historically themed evening will be an experience expertly crafted by Event Essentials featuring valet service, welcome cocktails (that flow throughout the evening), a four course dinner (a heated tent and parlor...!), the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, a chance to fall in love with the history of Madison's parks, and a few surprises.
