Picnic in Jefferson Park, Wed June 25, 2014

What an awesome good time we're gonna have on Wednesday June 25, as the the annual Union Hill Picnic returns to Jefferson Park!

Bring a side dish or dessert to share.  Label it vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free.

We've got you covered with Alamo BBQ, fried and baked chicken, ice tea, lemonade and cold water.

Bring your kids, your friends and your neighbors. Bring a lawn chair or blanket.

This year, we'll celebrate the installation of "Mr Smedley" the bronze sculpture created by Virginia Artist (and VCU alumnus,) Jack Witt.

Members of the Public Art Commission will join us for the festivities along with the artist and his family members.

Live music from "The Blue & the Grey" will grace the park. We start at 7pm and wrap up by 9pm.  See you there!
