There are a number of ways that you, as an individual or a family, can join the Picnic Project community. You can share your time and presence, attend an event, rock some Picnic Project gear, and spread awareness to your friends and networks.

Volunteer

Joining us at one of our events, or preparing for them, is one way to get involved with Picnic Project. We have always been all about building relationships, and surprising friendships, that cross lines that would normally separate us. So come out, pack some bags, mingle with our community, and show that another world is possible. To learn more, visit our calendar, select an event and click for details and to claim a spot!​

Wear

If you want to show your love of Picnic Project and help support us at the same time, check out our merch store! We have multiple designs, with choices of colors and styles. It's also a good way to spark conversations with friends and neighbors who wonder what in the world a picnic project is!

Share

Believe it or not, all the people you know may not know who or what Picnic Project is! It is super helpful if you follow us on social media, like (or love) and share or posts, and invite your friends to follow us too. It's also a great way to stay updated on everything we are up to and discover more ways to participate.
