Picnic in the Park

Picnic in the Park – Presented by Event Essentials

Picnic in the Park is our signature event held to benefit the Madison Parks Foundation. We hope our contribution will continue to support and enhance beautiful spaces for generations to come.

Our Signature Event

Our desire to create a signature event that directly supports the community that has nurtured our own growth and success is perfectly fitting.
“The parks have played an unrecognizable and subtle and important role in the lives of many Madisonians.”
-Kevin Hoffman President and Owner of Event Essentials
We hope you can join us for a wonderful night out enjoying one of Madison’s most iconic parks – Olin Park on 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.

Building a Legacy

With this event, the Madison Parks Foundation celebrates the remarkable history of the individuals who set the stage for our parks as we know them today. Our hope is to follow their lead by educating those about history, advocating for the neighborhoods and embracing projects that make a positive impact on our residents, ultimately creating a new legacy for the future.
