• About Us

A San Diego Catering Company that Loves to Party

At Picnic People, we LOVE what we do—bringing fun, relaxation, and laughs everywhere we go. We create exciting, unique experiences for organizations throughout San Diego because we believe in spreading joy. A full-service San Diego catering and events company, we thrive on sunshine, games, good food, and fun.

Our History

We got our start in 1984 right here in San Diego. Over the years, we’ve built a staff of dedicated, passionate picnic lovers. We’ve learned the ins and outs of San Diego’s city and county parks—like how early you have to get to Mission Beach to secure the best spot (before sunrise, in case you were wondering). From the start, we’ve collaborated with businesses and groups to create unforgettable events.

Our Future

We’re going to keep bringing the fun to America’s Finest City! Our team is always looking for new challenges. We’ll continue to take everything we’ve learned and apply our 5-step process to every single event. As our clients grow and their needs change, we’ll grow right along with them—and maybe throw a few fun surprises their way. Our events may evolve, but our values and commitment to fun will never change.

WBENC Certified

We’re proud to be certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the country. This certification is granted to businesses that are at least 51% owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women.

Family Owned & Small Business Certified

Our founder and owner has been with Picnic People from the beginning. The business will stay in the family—eventually, her sons will be running the show!
