It’s Not Too Late for a San Diego Corporate Picnic

If you’ve been wanting to host a company picnic this summer and you think you’ve missed your chance, you’re in luck!

The best time to picnic in San Diego is right as summer starts to turn into fall. There are a ton of benefits to hosting a corporate picnic in September or October—but we’ll just share a few!

It’s the most sun-derful time of the year

We said it: early fall is the most beautiful time to be in San Diego, as the weather is just perfect. It barely ever rains, the sun is still out but not quite as strong and the temperature stays in the low 70s and 60s—what more could you ask for?

Back to school

As soon as September hits, all of the kids are back in school. This means that parks and other kid-focused venues (like campgrounds and amusement parks) are wide open for your corporate picnic. We have a whole list of the best company picnic venues throughout the San Diego area, including Mission Bay, North County, Downtown and more!

Bye-bye, “zonies”

San Diego natives know that our friends to the southeast like to visit over the summer. But when Arizonans head back home, some of San Diego’s nicest picnic spots open up. Other tourists from around the globe usually clear out by this time as well, meaning that there’s more room for you and your coworkers to celebrate.

Entertainers are open

Early-fall events are a bit of an insider secret, meaning that the majority of San Diego company picnics are held in the summer. Well, lucky for you, this means that the entertainers that are in high demand usually have more free time once the seasons change. If you had your heart set on a popular band, cool clowns or groovy DJ, chances are they have some more availability in September and October than they would over the summer months.

The gang’s all together again

Lastly, one of the least popular times for employees to take vacations is in September and October. After all, it’s the first few months of the school year for those with kids, and it’s the off-season for travel, too. If you’re planning a company picnic, you want as many people there as possible, and picking a time when everyone’s in town is the best way to do it!

Are you convinced? We sure are—at Picnic People, we love putting together amazing company picnics in September and October. Ready to start planning yours? Contact us or call 858.586.1717 today.
