We look at every sunny day (and even some rainy ones) as a new opportunity to bring something astonishing and never before seen or experienced to our community. Our five step plan for every event never fails to yield a day to remember for our guests. When it comes to planning five star events, this is how the pros do it!


Step 1: Logistics

Our professional planners meet with you personally to examine your interests and look over every detail with a fine-toothed comb. We look at guest count, demographics, past event experiences and all other event elements to determine best setup, event flow, safety plan and timeline. Whether it be a nice relaxing day for your employees or a fun-filled extravaganza for the kids, we determine exactly what your event aims to accomplish and map it out like Magellan!

Step 2: Location

Picnic People is dedicated to finding the ideal spot to make your event pop! Once we’ve identified the ideal venue for your event, we work on checking availability, accommodations (because if you want alcohol at your event, we have to make sure it’s allowed!) and full permit processing. We take care of all the nasty paperwork and bureaucratic red tape so you don’t have to. We also provide early morning squatting of your picnic location to ensure the best setup possible!

Step 3: Coordination

Now we get to the real fun! Our event planning experts put their heads together to turn your unique vision into reality. From here, we identify the most imaginative and fun activities and themes for your event based on your group’s vision. We show you how awesome and fun event planning with us can be by involving you in the planning process and running with your ideas!


Step 4: Proposal

When it’s proposal time, that means it’s time to get it in writing and get busy! We craft a proposal with all the details from A to Z (a for activities, b for budget, z for… petting zoo animals maybe?). We cross the T’s, dot the I’s, presenting a picnic proposal that clearly paints the picture of your picnic in words… and pictures of course! Every event is customized because you are unique.

Step 5: Execution & Wrap-Up

Our favorite part—the part where we get to feed and entertain you and your guests because that is what we do best! For park-hosted events, Picnic People arrives to your site at 4AM—right when the parks open. We start setting up, reserving the area, and prepping to meet your guests with smiling faces. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by your event and catering supervisors (look for the slick green polo shirts!) to give you a quick rundown on the day’s activities, food, entertainment and more.

Before the start of your event, listen for the Picnic People Cheer to kick off the day: “1, 2, 3, 4 Service, Smiles and A Whole Lot More!

When it’s all over, we’ll take care of all the cleanup and leave the space nicer than when we found it. Our reputation in the park system is stellar because we leave the parks in better condition than when we arrived.
