Join us for the 6th Annual Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic at Palm Park (711 East 3rd Street) on Saturday, April 14, starting at 6:30 pm. This community picnic is an Austin favorite, inviting everyone to experience Waller Creek with friends and family. Enjoy picnic baskets prepared by some of Austin’s best restaurants, kick back with a dj set, catch up with friends, and watch the sunset behind the Austin skyline.
Chefs from some of Austin’s most beloved restaurants will prepare picnic basket dinners for two, starting at $40. 2018 restaurants TBA.
Picnic basket sales will open to the public in the Spring of 2018 on wallercreekpicnic.org. Event attendance is free & open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to purchase picnic baskets to support Waller Creek, and may also bring their own spread.
All event proceeds benefit Waller Creek Conservancy.
