This is 50

A Celebration of Our Destination 

Wednesday, November 29, 2023     

5 – 8 p.m.

The Sylvee

For 50 years, Destination Madison has made an economic impact through tourism. But our impact has not been achieved alone. Join us for an evening of honoring hospitality stars and unsung heroes in our community with the return of Destination Madison Awards. We will also celebrate 50 years of evolution, successes, and hard work as we look forward to the bright future of tourism in Madison. This event raises funds for the Destination Madison Foundation.

Cocktail attire is recommended for this festive night of networking, which includes a hosted bar plus passed hors d’oeuvres and food stations featuring signature creations in collaboration with chefs from some of Madison’s favorite restaurants.

Cocktail attire is recommended. Proceeds benefit the Destination Madison Foundation.
