Food and Catering

Whether made at home or catered by professionals, great food has always been a central part of the Picnic with the Pops experience. This year, we are pleased to add another option for your dining pleasure. For the first time, we have selected two fabulous gourmet food trucks to serve food on-site for this year’s event!
