MADISON, Wis. — A crowd gathered at the Garver Feed Mill Thursday night for the world premiere of an episode of the PBS show “Places to Love with Samantha Brown” featuring all that Madison has to offer.

During the episode, Brown tours the Wisconsin State Capitol and the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, tastes some cheese and mustard and learns about curling with local Olympian Becca Hamilton.

“For Madison to be part of her new season is very exciting for all of us,” said Ellie Westman Chin, the president and CEO of Destination Madison. “Recovering from the pandemic and tourism isn’t all the way back to where we would like it to be, so this is really going to help with our recovery, telling folks and showing visitors why they should make Madison part of their destination plans this buzzer.”

The show is now in its sixth season. The Madison episode is set to air next Friday at 10 pm on PBS Wisconsin channel 21.3.
