National Picnic Day


Did you know our modern-day idea of a picnic evolved from Medieval hunting feasts and Victorian garden parties?


During the early 19th century a group of wealthy London citizens formed "The Picnic Society" to promote picnics as social gatherings. These picnics were potlucks, and each participant also had to provide a share of the entertainment. Today, picnics are casual meals enjoyed on a comfortable picnic blanket.
