Join Us for The FOURTH annual Picnic in the Park

Saturday, October 19, 2019

in Vilas Park

This historically themed evening will be an experience expertly crafted by Event Essentials.

With Picnic in the Park, Event Essentials strives to create more than an event, but rather an experience.  Picnic in the Park has taken us from Tenney Park its inaugural year, to Hoyt Park, to Olbrich Park, and this year to Vilas Park as we step another decade forward into the 1930s.

We are excited and thankful to partner again with local celebrity chefs Jonny Hunter (Forequarter/Underground Food Collective) and Tommy Gering (Casetta) for an era-inspired feast paired with wine and cocktails. 

Live music will include a performance from singer Gerri DiMaggio singing songs from the era.  Themed attire is certainly encouraged. This is truly Madison’s most unique event, and we promise you a memorable evening in support of a great cause!
