Summer Events in Avon mean lots of fun things – including long summer days and picnic season! Maximize your experience at SunsetLIVE! concerts on Sunday evenings with these summer picnic tips helping you create the perfect al fresco meal in Nottingham Park.
- Picnic basket
- Cooler or insulated bag
- Low-backed lawn chair
- Reusable or compostable napkins
- Reusable utensils
- Reusable cups and plates
- Water bottle
- Corkscrew (if needed)
Here are some of our favorite al fresco snacks:
Sandwiches: You can grab something to-go from one of Avon’s many local deli’s or make your own (be sure to wrap in parchment paper, wax paper, or other sustainable packaging). Bonus points for tying your sandwich with twine or ribbon for extra-special presentation.
Picnic Plate: Who doesn’t love a cheese plate? Add some meats, nuts and fresh fruit for an extra twist!
Snacks & Dessert: Veggies and hummus or pimiento cheese dip are a personal favorite. Magic bars, cookies or fresh fruit make for a great in-hand dessert.
Drinks: A reminder that we don’t allow outside alcohol at AvonLIVE! concerts, but for SunsetLIVE! we allow everyone to BYOB – whether it’s sparkling water, fruit juice, or your favorite adult beverage.
Don’t let your food get ruined or mushy by packing anything liquid in leak-proof containers (salad dressings, cold soups, fruit salad).
Pack your picnic basket like you pack your groceries – with sturdy, heavy items on the bottom – and more fragile items on top.
No single use plastic! Most of Avon’s events are plastic-free.
Sharing is caring! Be sure to pack some extra and maybe your neighbors will offer you some of their treasures!
Pack it up – please be sure to use the zero-hero waste tents provided by Walking Mountains Science Center to remove any waste.
