Picnics are welcome on the lawn for our Orchestra Summer Picnic series performances. On Picnic Nights, Mann patrons will enjoy the ease and convenience of returning picnic gear to their cars by accessing the new re-entry gate located on the Citizen's Bank Plaza. Enjoy your reserved seat experience without the hassle of storing picnic baskets under your seats! Please check specific event listing to determine participation in the Summer Picnic series.

If you’re planning on picnicking on the lawn pre-concert and moving to your reserved seat undercover when the performance begins, please be sure that your cooler is small enough to be stowed under your seat.  Please note that all picnic accessories must be smaller than 15 inches wide and no taller than 12 inches, in order to be stowed under your seat during the show. No glass containers are allowed undercover. Kegs and mini kegs are not permitted into the theater.
