Spread a blanket on the lawn, reminisce with family and friends over a glass of chilled wine at a picnic table, or set up your own table and chairs decked out for the day – we have plenty of space. Bring your own eats, visit our Refreshment Stand, or order ahead from a special picnic menu offered by our exclusive caterer, Great Performances. We love barbecue, but please leave your grills and other cooking equipment at home – we cannot allow them on the grounds. Enjoy the sounds of the concert from the Picnic Lawn with a Garden Listening ticket for only $10. To order your ticket, call the Box Office at 914.232.1252.
