Picnic In The Park 2020

Join us for a virtual Picnic in the Park!  Whether you are picnicking on your living room floor, your third-floor balcony, or in your backyard, you can transport yourself to the French countryside, a beach in Peru, or to one of the lovely parks in the Golden Triangle.

We’re here to curate your delicious and culturally rich at-home picnic with our restaurant and retail partners in the Golden Triangle and our friends at the State Department’s American Music Abroad program.
