Are you a member of one of Brat Fest’s 120+ benefiting nonprofit organizations, and know someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty in your organization? Consider nominating them for Brat Fest’s Maggie Award.
Named for Margaret “Maggie” Metcalfe, wife of Brat Fest founder Tom Metcalfe, the Maggie award is dedicated to all of the people who give countless hours, not for pay but for passion, to enrich our community through their selfless devotion to the charities they support. Brat Fest is not just a community festival, or even a music festival. Brat Fest is 3-4,000 people who work and toil together for no money or prestige and who do whatever it takes to make it possible that people from all walks of life — of every age, nationality, of all political and religious beliefs — can get together for four days in May, to celebrate life, dreams and diversity… all while raising money for charity.
Every charity that chooses to be a part of Brat Fest is encouraged to name an individual or group of individuals who have distinguished themselves by their work and dedication. Charities that were registered participants at Brat Fest in 2018 are eligible for the 2019 award.
The winning entry will be introduced on the stage along with a representative of their charity on Friday, May 24th at 6:45pm on the Grand stage. Brat Fest and the Madison Youth Performing Arts Foundation (MYPAF) will award a combined $1,000 to the winning entry’s charity.
