We’ve pulled out all the stops this year when it comes to food. Celebrity chef Chris Santos returns once more, creating three delicious Pinknic Baskets for Two, which can be pre-ordered until June 12 and will be available for pickup at the event.

Santos’ three local restaurants will also be cooking food on-site at the Pinknic Food Court. Whatever your preference, the food at Pinknic 2017 is sure to delight. Grab a glass of Château d’Esclans, Champagne Pommery, or frosé and enjoy.
