Giving Back!

When you give from the heart, amazing things happen.

“Giving back” means so much more than just making a donation—it means making a positive difference in the lives of members of the community who need a helping hand. This mission is the true inspiration and motivation behind the continued success of the World’s Largest Brat Fest in Madison, Wisconsin.

Over the last 30+ years, Brat Fest has raised over $2.3 million to support local charities who rely on proceeds from the event to help keep their programs running. The purpose of Brat Fest is to build a sense of community by gathering people each year to celebrate the start of summer and to raise money for area charities. Your attendance and participation helps us help those in need, which touches people’s lives in a very powerful and meaningful way.

Thanks to everyone who donates and participates for your loyal support!
