The Art of a Perfect Picnic
Jul 18, 2017
Putting together a pre-show picnic can be half the fun of attending a show at Wolf Trap – just look at some of the spreads our fans have put together! There is no wrong way to pack a picnic, from the quick grab-and-go section at the grocery store, to meticulously planning a menu that goes with the theme of the show – our patrons have done it all. Get inspired and learn some pro tips from these picnics shared by our followers on Instagram:
Pro Tip: From traditional picnic fare to sushi and tea sandwiches, anything goes! At Wolf Trap, you can bring-your-own food and drink to the park.
Pro-Tip: Don’t forget about your refreshments! From wine and craft beers, to specialty cocktails – let your drinks be the main act.
**Reminder: Picnicking before the show but have seats inside? Grab a Pavilion Cup from concessions to bring your drinks inside!
Pro-Tip: Picnic accessories are almost as important as food. Don’t forget your blankets, coolers, baskets, wine holders, corkscrews, cheeseboards, tables, and more.
“Our table was designed specifically for #WolfTrap. The legs are longer in the front and shorter in the back to accommodate the lawn – it’s custom-made for the hill. It works in all spots on the lawn. We’re serious Wolf Trappers. We come 3-4 times a year, and have been coming for 8 years…We love it here.” (Chuck) For more Stories of Wolf Trap, click link in bio!
Don’t have the drink holder stakes yet? Pro-tip: a shoe can double as a drink holder!
