World's Largest Brat Fest

1919 Alliant Energy Center Way
Madison, WI 53713


Our Mission:

The World’s Largest Brat Fest is committed to the important mission of giving back to the community while having fun celebrating all that it means to live in Wisconsin—our diverse history and rich heritage, the many people who faithfully serve our community, our excitement when summer has at long last arrived…and don’t forget our love of ALL that is Bratwurst!

With the help of over 3000 volunteers, Brat Fest strives to enrich and improve people’s lives by collectively raising more than $120,000 each year to help support the charitable organizations that provide a multitude of essential services to members of our community. The proceeds from Brat Fest directly benefit area charities that help to staff the event, which have a profound impact on building better lives for all members of the Madison community.

By supporting Brat Fest over the last 34 years, you have helped contribute almost  $1.75 million to the charitable organizations that make a positive difference in the personal and social lives of so many people in our community. Thank you for supporting our mission of helping to make Madison such an amazing place to live!
