Parrots of the Caribbean

Madison Rotary’s PARROTS OF THE CARIBBEAN is our end-of-summer fundraiser party that features live music, dancing, raffle baskets, food and libations in a Caribbean-style theme. Since 2002, “Parrots” – as it is known locally – has become the premier party event in downtown Madison, having grown from a small gathering of Rotarians in a community club house to a spectacular event attended by over 700 guests from across the surrounding area.

During this celebration, Rotarians host a great community event while also honoring the corporations, companies, and individuals whose generous donations throughout the year support our local and international humanitarian service projects.  The event also allows Rotarians to share the highlights of our on-going service projects with our guests and followers on social media.
