Welcome Picnic - Students/Scholars

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 you and your family. 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. Join us and make a memory that will last a lifetime!

  • Make connections with other students and residents.
  • Enjoy a typical Wisconsin picnic lunch.
  • Sing along with UW cheer songs.
  • Play games.
