The Lakeshore Park Summer Picnic is a community event, bringing Knoxville together to experience incredible food and company, all in the stunning setting of Lakeshore Park.
The goal of the picnic is to raise funds and awareness, but there is no confusing it with a black-tie gala. It just feels like dinner al fresco with friends on a warm summer night in East Tennessee.
The evening features curated picnic baskets from some of Knoxville’s best local restaurants. Open to the public, the Summer Picnic attracts Knoxvillians who love green space, great design, and fabulous cuisine. Spread your blanket and enjoy picnic baskets prepared by some of Knoxville’s best chefs. Or bring your own basket and enjoy the Park while listening to great music, catching up with your friends, and watching the sun drop behind Marble Hall.
The funds raised from the event support Lakeshore Park Conservancy in its mission to manage, preserve, and enhance Lakeshore Park and to build a community dedicated to conserving the Park for the future.
