May Picnic in the Park

Photo by Maureen Cassidy 2011

The May Picnic in the Park was started in 2011 by myself and my friend and co-conspirator, Helen Sarakinos. We staked a tall pink pole into the muddy ground at Yahara Place Park and tried to keep it from blowing down. At this point, we know to expect it to be very windy, fairly chilly, and a wonderful way to celebrate spring.

We started the picnic in the park for our kids, and now they expect it, along with many other families who have faithfully been there all these years. I feel proud to say, the picnic holiday is truly an asset to our Madison community.

The May Picnic in the Park goes like this:

  • we gather from 11-1 on what is generally a very windy day at the Yahara Place Park
  • children help decorate the pole with flowers
  • musicians bring instruments and play whatever they feel like
  • families plop down blankets and picnic baskets 
  • we have a great time playing, share food with friends and neighbors, and maybe even prancing around the pink pole
I've never counted heads but each year the lawn is covered in a concert-on-the-square way. It's awesome! Please join us this year!
