“Our restaurants are amazing and are excited to show what they have to offer,” said Danielle Dixon, a co-chair of the Taste Organizing Committee. “Pair that with great wine, beer and friends and you can’t go wrong,” she said.

The Park Avenue Club is the longtime home of the Taste of Madison and a short distance from historic downtown Madison. Valet parking will be available.

Continuing a Taste of Madison tradition by chef Robert Ubhaus, Redux has donated a special Chef’s Counter Dinner for eight people to the silent auction. Per tradition, the meal will be paired with wine selected by Gary Fisch, owner of Gary’s Wine & Marketplace.

Festivities will also include a beer garden, which was established last year, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction and a tricky-tray event. 

The event is produced by a non-profit partnership of the Madison Downtown Development Commission, the Rotary Club of Madison and the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce for the betterment of the community.  In its previous fifteen editions, the Taste of Madison has raised almost $500,000.00.
