2019 Pop-Up Picnic: Cancelled

presented by BBVA Compass

Apr 6 6pm—9pm

Palm Park

2019 Pop-Up Picnic Update

Due to hazardous weather including a tornado watch and the possibility of lightening, we are moving forward with cancelling this year’s Pop-Up Picnic.

BUT basket pick up is still on!

Take your picnic home to enjoy with your friends and family! If you have already purchased a picnic basket, they can be picked up on-site at the corner of 3rd Street and IH-35 between 6-7pm this evening. Due to today’s inclement weather, all other Pop-Up Picnic activities at Palm Park are cancelled.

We hope you will host your own pop-up picnic. Share your indoor pics on social media using #PopUpPicnic and tag WCC for a chance to win one of (20) $100 Outdoor Voices gift cards!

There is still time to score amazing gifts! Raffle Tickets can still be purchased to win one of these awesome prizes:


YETI cooler and outdoor gear provided by Saint Bernard

1-Night stay at poolside bungalow at Hotel Saint Cecilia with custom Kimono robe

Thank you for supporting Waller Creek Conservancy.


If you’ve attended the Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic, you know exactly the potential of the new Waller Creek Park project. Come by car, bus, bike, or on foot, spread your blanket, and enjoy picnic baskets prepared by some of Austin’s best restaurants. Or, bring your own basket and enjoy Palm Park while listening to great music, catching up with your friends, and watching the sun drop behind the city skyline.

The Waller Creek Conservancy hosts the picnic each spring to raise funds and awareness, but there’s no confusing it with a black-tie gala. It just feels like Austin being Austin, the kind of coming together that, when the project is complete, will be possible on Waller Creek every night of the year. Everyone is invited to free public event!
