THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT! PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR OUR NEXT EVENT THIS FALL.
The Gardens will be closing at 2PM on 9/20 to set up for the picnic.
Celebrate the end of summer with food, friends and music picnicking outdoors in the Gardens.
All you need to bring is a blanket, the family, and a reservation (maybe some bug spray but no alcohol please). Here are the details:
- Choose your timeslot and order your dinner online in advance at this link, adult and kid meal options are available. Please place your order by noon on Sunday, 9/19. No cash transactions will take place at the event.
- Masks must be worn while moving around the Gardens. Please bring a signed copy of our Covid-19 Safety Waiver
- Each reservation group can line up on North Mountain Ave. 15 minutes before their session starts to check in. Upon arriving through the North Mountain Ave. gate, check in, pick up your food order and proceed to a marked, spaced apart picnic spot. Picnic spots will be marked on the ground on the formal garden lawn by the live music and in quieter parts of the Gardens, too. There will be an activity sheet to pick up by our Visitor’s Center and families are free to explore the grounds by following the arrows. Everyone will exit through the Van Vleck Street pedestrian gate.
Benji’s Tacqueria Mexican Grill will prepare delicious Mexican food perfect for a picnic. The talented young performers from School Of Rock will perform acoustic selections in the Gardens to entertain everyone. It will be a relaxing, fun evening to catch up with friends and enjoy the outdoors. We hope to see you there!
