Event Details

Join us for the 1st annual Pop-Up Picnic in Freedom Park, celebrating the connection between local farms and local foods, as well as the importance of conservation.

Come spread a blanket and dine on local treats from picnic baskets prepared by great Charlotte restaurants, or enjoy a basket you’ve packed yourself. Catch up with neighbors and listen to bluegrass music while the sun sets behind the trees of the city’s most iconic park.

Presented to the community by Wells Fargo, this community picnic will prove to be a Charlotte favorite!

Picnic meals, provided by local restaurants, are SOLD OUT! Please register if you plan to attend without purchasing a basket.

Beer and wine will be for sale on-site from Lenny Boy Brewing Co. and Arthur’s Wine Shop.
