We won’t be able to fire up the barbeque this year, but that’s no reason we can’t encourage you to picnic on your own. Launching July 26 and running through August, our picnic page will offer a variety of helpful instructional videos, performances and prompts to help you build a perfect picnic, whether it be in your home, your backyard, or throughout the city.
Featuring hands on activities, storytime, songs from Ben Bowen, suggestions for great picnic food in the city, and links to great activities from our recurring picnic partners the Hamilton Public Library, Royal Botanical Garden, and Environment Hamilton, and fun ways you can share photos and videos from your own events!
