Food & Catering


Whether made at home or catered by professionals, great food has always been a central part of the Picnic with the Pops experience!

While patrons are welcome to bring their own picnic, many tables choose to arrange for on-site catering. We have a handful of local caterers who regularly provide meals for our patrons on-site – as the event nears, we will post links to special Picnic with the Pops menus provided by local caterers.

We also typically feature a couple on-site, gourmet food trucks, for patrons looking for a more casual dining option.

On-site Food Trucks – 2018

Roll ‘n Smoke

Formerly Smoke This BBQ & Roll, this truck features gourmet egg rolls of various flavors, with a BBQ focus.. Find more info on their Facebook page and check back as the event nears for more info on what they’ll have available at this year’s Picnic with the Pops!
Note: we had previously erroneously cited that Rolling Oven  would be present at the event- we apologize for the error!

The Epic Cure

Based out of Richmond, Ky., The Epic Cure Mobile Eatery is dedicated to providing locally sourced chef driven cuisine. Check out their Facebook page and check back soon for their special Picnic with the Pops menu!

Spotz Gelato

Spotz Gelato features handcrafted, small batch gelato and sorbet made from fresh, local ingredients – find more information on at their website,!

Catering Options

Many local caterers offer special catering menus specifically for Picnic with the Pops each year. While the Picnic with the Pops Commission doesn’t officially endorse specific caterers, we do provide information on selected caterers as a courtesy to our guests. Feel free to hire these (or any other caterer) to create a stress-free dining experience for you and your guests!
