EpicPicnic has an easy, three-step process to set up the elevated picnic event of your dreams. You can choose from picnic-perfect locations like Eden Park and Nisbet Park in historic downtown Loveland, or have your picnic set up in your home or backyard. Fill out the questionnaire to customize your experience, and then simply show up on your reserved day to enjoy your picnic spread. Snack on a Grazing Board, which includes cured meats and cheeses, around a low table, pillows, and decor. EpicPicnic setups are adorned with the likes of canvas tents and chic umbrellas so you can snap all the aesthetic pictures your heart desires.

Picnic Party Cincinnati

Everyone deserves to be celebrated at Picnic Party Cincinnati. The elegant picnic packages include a low picnic table and all the cushions you’ll need to chill comfortably, plus cute touches like LED lanterns and a letterboard with a custom message of your choice. For an added fee, Picnic Party will pick up food from your favorite local spot, or you can try treats from its partners, Autumn Park Sweets and The Cheese Garden. Packages accommodate anywhere from two to 12 people so you can plan an intimate date night or throw a birthday bash. Choose from themes like royal blue, pretty in pink, and boho chic, or work with owner Jemannie Severson Luong to create a custom theme for your special picnic event.

Mystery Picnics

You’ll eventually end up at the final destination, where you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the food you’ve picked up along the way. In the Cincinnati area, Mystery Picnics offers OTR and West Chester mystery picnics, where you’ll have the opportunity to explore the area while looking forward to a picturesque picnic at the end.
