Our Story

From South Bay to North County, we know San Diego because we ARE San Diego. It’s where we started over 35 years ago and where we continue to thrive. We know how to get the best Mission Bay park setup at sunrise and snag that perfect spot right by the water for the perfect picnic day! We know how to prepare and present great BBQ, concessions and craft beer. Most of all, we know that San Diegans like to play as hard as they work, which is why our goal is to provide them with delicious picnic catering and a complete event experience where fun, relaxation and belly laughs are top priority.

We got our start in 1984 right here in San Diego. Over the years, we’ve built a staff of dedicated, passionate picnic lovers. We’ve learned the ins and outs of San Diego’s city and county parks—like how early you have to get to Mission Beach to secure the best spot (before sunrise, in case you were wondering). From the start, we’ve collaborated with businesses and groups to create unforgettable events.

We’re San Diego's proven leader in creating fun, imaginative and memorable picnics and events for hundreds of San Diego companies over the past three decades. Talk to Picnic People about your event and receive a Free Giant Games package for your next event just for mentioning our new website.
