You’re Invited to B.C.’s Big At Home Picnic

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary events including extraordinary people like you. That’s why you’re invited to B.C.’s Big At Home Picnic! 

How does the Big At Home Picnic work?

On Saturday, March 28 at 1:00 PDT, wash your hands, lay down a blanket and set up a picnic area in your home. This could be your living room, balcony, front or back yard – wherever you can!

Whether on your own or with others from your immediate household, join the Big At Home Picnic Facebook event page. Not on Facebook? We’ll be sharing picnic tips and ideas on our blog throughout the week, so keep checking back and join in the fun!

Join the province-wide toast, then tune in to live streams from artists, performers and hosts from around the province. At the same time, you’ll be connected with all the other British Columbians who will be watching, together.

While the BC Parks Foundation normally would be encouraging you to get out to parks, they are crowded and some people are not respecting social distancing. That’s why we’re organizing this virtual, at home picnic. Please respect all provincial and federal health requests so that we can end the spread of COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

So, let’s spend an afternoon together, as proud British Columbians, connecting while maintaining proper social distance. Let’s get together (virtually) and do what we love: eating and drinking, connecting with family and friends, and appreciating the supernatural beauty of where we live.

Tips on how to picnic at home safely:

  • Picnic on your own, or with a partner, your kids or your pet. Stick to your immediate household.
  • Some great places to picnic: your living room, kitchen, balcony, front or back yard.
  • Connect with other people virtually using video platforms like Facetime, Google Hangouts or Zoom.
  • Practice good hygiene by washing or sanitizing your hands frequently and covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or your upper sleeve.
  • Adhere to all health and safety guidelines from the Provincial Health Authority.
