     Held on certain Saturdays, weather permitting, throughout the year.  Our brat fest/ garage sale / book sale is scheduled for Friday, September 22, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm & Saturday, September 23, 2017, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm at Post 501, 105 Dempsey Road, Madison, WI 53714. 
    Note that we will also be having a garage sale and a book sale this day.  Post Cdr. will be at the Post 501 on Wednesday, September 20, and Thursday, September 21, 9:00 am - 11:00 am, to accept your donations.  According to the Post Cdr., please do not bring TV's, electrical appliances, or junk. Only quality new/used items will be accepted.  Please contact the Post Cdr. if you have questions at 608-244-7716..
    Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends.  If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.
    We offer Johnsonville brats (full meal for $5), hot dogs (full meal $3), with or without buns, condiments, soda or water, and a wide selection of chips.  Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats and hot dogs.
     Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  If you can provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  We do need the additional support due to the popularity of this brat fest location.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats.
