We will also unveil a special partnership with Graze restaurant, a cutting-edge farm-to-table style restaurant in the hustle and bustle of downtown Madison.

Allen Centennial Garden hosted a new wintertime garden event on February 19–20, Luminous. Over 3,000 people came to enjoy the Garden and the six elegantly designed luminary exhibits, bonfires, s’mores and hot chocolate. The Garden interns were the masterminds behind the event and each curated a different installation.
