We might hate COVID, but we are absolutely loving all the unique new event concepts coming from it. Today, we’re thrilled to fill you in on pik nik, an event that is sure to become one of the most memorable of the entire summer!

Brought to you by the co-founder of the super-popular Packwood Grand and past co-host of Diner En Blanc, pik nik will be the socially-distanced affair of the summer. It’s being described as ‘a celebration of local chefs, restaurants, and musicians under the backdrop of Calgary’s urban outdoor spaces’. AKA, an event that will be bringing together some of the city’s best talent to create the ultimate picnic experience.

Five of Calgary’s most talented chefs are already involved with the event including Connie DeSousa and John Jackson of charbar / charcut, Mike Pigot of Craft Beer Market, Chris Dewling of Annabelle’s Kitchen, and Matt Beaty of Teatro Group / Alforno.

Each $99 ticket gets you an exclusive picnic feast for two, specially curated from the chef of your choice. It will include an appy, salad, main course, dessert, and a bottle of wine to pair!

On the day of the event, just grab your picnic blanket, head to your selected restaurant to pick up your meal and walk to the nearest outdoor space to enjoy! You’ll also receive instructions giving you exclusive access to a live-streamed audio performance brought to you by some amazing local DJs and musicians including DJ Joanna Magik and Jory Kinjo.

Guests are encouraged to wear their best white-coloured outfit to show their participation. It’s giving us some Diner en Blanc-esque vibes that we definitely didn’t want to live without this summer! You’re going to look good, eat well, and undoubtedly have yourself a great time.

Summer won’t be here forever, so get your tix now while they’re still available!
