Welcome to Madison!

Opening Night: Thursday, June 23

4:30 to 5:30 pm: Stop by our table in the Concourse Hotel lobby, to pick up your ID badge and your swag bag. Wear your badge every day; it’s your ticket to board the bus.

If you miss the registration time, contact Anneliese or Beth at the welcome reception (Madison Children’s Museum at 6 p.m.) and we’ll find a time after the reception to get your things.

The swag bag will contain lots of goodies PLUS the tour routes and garden descriptions; be sure to find them in the bag and take them with you on the bus.

Daily Departures and Arrivals

DEPARTURES Buses board promptly at 8 a.m. on Friday and Sunday; and at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.


Friday: We hope to be back at the Concourse at 7:15-7:30 pm. (Our promptness loading and unloading the buses and traffic conditions could affect the time.)

Saturday: We plan to be back at the Concourse at about 6 pm.

Sunday: We plan to be back at 6:45-7 pm.

Weather forecast as of Tuesday 6/21:

It will be warm Thursday through Saturday, but quite comfortable on Sunday. We’ll have plenty of water to drink. The nights will be comfy, though. Restaurants may have their A/C kicked up high, so plan to bring along a sweater or a light jacket.

Time to Fling!
