In APRIL of 2015 we launched the Picnic Society

A global community of people who love to eat outdoors as much as possible 

We wrote the Al Fresco Manifesto as a celebration of food, friends, and warm weather. Members pledge to host at least one picnic during the season, and we email members with picnic ideas and inspiration once a month from April to August.

The Al Fresco Manifesto

Food tastes better when eaten outdoors.

Meals are healthier when shared with friends.

When we're feeling fancy, we bring silverware. When we're not, we bring finger food.

We always travel with tupperware and an old blanket, to increase the likelihood of an impromptu picnic.

The secret to a perfect afternoon lies in a full picnic basket.


The Picnic Society is now closed for the season.

We'll return in the Spring of 2016.  In the meantime, feel free to download the Picnic Society printable badges and distribute them to the power picnickers in your life.
