Picnic en Blanc is a nontraditional summer picnic event in a nontraditional location. It's a simple and beautiful social occasion that celebrates the joy of community!
The Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation and Redwood City Events are excited to host the Fourth Annual Picnic en Blanc. Invite your friends, co-workers or family and come together as a group for a wonderful end-of-summer social event.

RECOMMENDED ATTIRE: As inspired by Dine en Blanc, a tradition that started in Paris, France, over 3 decades ago, we suggest that you wear casual all white attire. Men, don't worry, you may wear khaki if you don't own white! (Add some fun and whimsy with a splash of color in the form of a hat, scarf, jewelry etc.)
