Approved Caterers

Olbrich Botanical Gardens is a City of Madison public park. Because the Gardens are publicly funded, each of these caterers has liability insurance with the City of Madison and has paid a security deposit. In addition, each caterer remits 10% of the total food and non-alcoholic beverage sales from an event to the City of Madison through Olbrich Gardens.

Find contact information for all of the current approved caterers below.

Due to Public Health Food & Safety regulations, potluck or carry-ins are not allowed.

Although many of the caterers on this list are accomplished bakers, you are not limited to this list to provide a wedding cake. You are welcome to use the licensed vendor of your choice for the wedding cake (or equivalent) only.
