Picnic in the Park | Madison Parks Foundation

October 26, 2017
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.
Madison Parks Foundation’s predecessor, the Madison Parks and Pleasure Drive Association, organized banquets to discuss their private efforts to create the public parks we know and love today. Renew the legacy of this tradition while indulging in dinner crafted by culinary talents of renowned chefs Jonny Hunter (Underground Food Collective), Phillip Hurley and John Gadau (Sardine).
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.
This event recreates the inspiration for our Madison parks in order to connect guests to the legacy that continues to preserve the natural spaces of our city.
