An Event To Celebrate A Legacy
Picnic in the Park was created through a partnership between Event Essentials and Madison Parks Foundation, with the purpose of bringing awareness to the deeply rooted history of Madison’s parks. We aim to create an extraordinary event, to celebrate the extraordinary history of the parks that make our beautiful city a home unlike any other.
Event Essentials has created a signature event that gives back to the community that has supported its own growth and success. “The parks have played a subtle and yet important role in the lives of many Madisonians,” says Kevin Hoffman, President and Owner of Events Essential. He is acutely aware that the parks are an integral part of Madison’s uniqueness.
With this event, Madison Park Foundation celebrates the remarkable history of the individuals who created Madison’s first parks and started the legacy of giving that continues to support our parks as we know them today. We hope to follow their lead by educating people about this history, advocating for Madison neighborhoods and embracing projects that make a positive impact on our residents. Through this work we are renewing the legacy for the future.
