Still Flinging in 2022!

Dear Fling Friends:

We want you to know that we’re committed to holding a Madison Fling in June 2022, and we plan to open registration after the holidays. Because of COVID uncertainties, we can't know yet if the format will be exactly the same as in previous years, but we do know we're excited to share Madison gardens with you.

Throughout most of this pandemic, Madison’s county of Dane has had some of the strictest mandates in the state and the lowest levels of COVID transmission and illness. Visit this link to see data for the state, including Madison and Dane County.

Currently, Madison is experiencing a high rate of COVID activity. We, of course, hope this won’t be the case in June. Our cases, like those of other Northern communities, tend to peak during the colder winter months when people are more likely to be gathering indoors. With that said, Dane County is one of the most vaccinated counties in the entire country.

Like most Garden Bloggers Flings, most of our venues will be outdoors, which greatly reduces the risk of transmission. We will lean toward decreasing indoor activities from our schedule.

For this Fling, it’s likely COVID vaccination will be required, per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. More details on vaccine requirements will be posted soon. Masks likely will be required on the buses and for indoor gatherings (which we will try to limit).

To recap, if you want to know more about the schedule, click on the “2022 Madison” tab at the top of this website, or visit this link: Madison Fling.

Registration for the Madison Fling will reopen soon. If you’re already registered, you’re all set, and you’ll have a discounted price for attendance.

If you haven’t registered yet, we hope you’ll join us! If you have any questions about registration or anything else about the Madison Fling, contact us at We may not have all the answers yet, but we’ll be happy to discuss our plans.

Thanks for your patience and support! Happy Holidays!
