Event Recap: Pop-Up Picnic in Palm Park

Picnic vibes

Where else can you picnic in a park on a perfect spring afternoon with 1500 of your closest friends and neighbors?!

We are pleased to have partnered with Waller Creek Conservancy for the second year in a row to produce the Conservancy’s Palm Park Pop-Up Picnic 2018. The event, which benefits the Conservancy is an annual affair in which the finest restaurants in Austin prepare tote bags full of elaborate picnic spreads featuring Franklin’s BBQ carved by postmaster Aaron Franklin himself, to fresh Thai salads from Sway.

With colorful blankets, chilled rose, and even treats for their pups, Austinites spread out on the lawn of the underutilized (and soon to be redeveloped!) Palm Park. As the sun sets Dan Gentile spins chilled out tunes on vinyl, gracing us with the perfect vibe for a relaxing evening downtown.

This community picnic is one of Austin’s favorite springtime traditions and we are happy to have dined in the park alongside y’all!
