Welcome Picnic

Check out a video of our 2019 Picnic!

Welcome Picnic is an annual MFIS event held at the beginning of the fall semester to welcome newly-arriving international students, scholars and their families.  Brittingham Park, located on Monona Bay, is a perfect setting to enjoy a fall day in Madison. Each year hundreds of international visitors gather with Madison community members for a day of food, fun and friendship.

  • Make connections with students and residents.
  • Enjoy a typical Wisconsin picnic lunch.
  • Sing along with UW cheer songs.
  • Take pictures with Bucky Badger.
  • Play sports and games.
