What is the Mann's Summer Picnic Series?
The Summer Picnic Series elevates the quintessential outdoor concert experience and has become a summer tradition for generations. This series, also referred to as a Picnic Night, allows you to bring your own homemade picnic to the venue to enjoy before and/or during the show.
Please note: Not every concert is a part of the series. Be sure to check for the picnic basket icon under the 'Dining' section on the concert event page.
Are there any restrictions to my picnic?
During the Picnic series, you may bring whatever refreshments you desire (alcohol included). Kegs or mini-kegs are not permitted.
If you’re planning on picnicking on the lawn pre-concert and moving to your reserved seat under cover, please be sure that your cooler is small enough (15" x 12") to be stowed under your seat. No glass containers are allowed under cover.
Can I return my picnic basket to my car?
You may return your picnic gear to your car and re-enter during our dedicated Picnic Nights.
