Once upon a time...

Back in 2009 Lindsey Love invited a close-knit group of party kids to Rotary Park for a day of fun in the sun, they brought their blankets and stuffed animals, and enjoyed each-others company until the sun went down. There were no DJ's, but it was an awesome day and people talked about it for the rest of the year, so from humble beginnings, The Teddy Bear Picnic was born. Every year more people would come party and the experience would get more and more surreal. By it's third year a rag-tag party crew had formed and the production value increased drastically beyond what Lindsey could do by himself. Over the past 6 years we have made just about every mistake we could possibly make throwing an outdoor party, but we can say with confidence that we have learned from all of them. This year we are more prepared than ever to deliver The Picnic. We have so much love for everybody that shows support. It's the love and happiness this party creates that fuels our volunteers and gets us out of bed to drag the sound stage to the park. We promise this is one to mark on your calendar. Bring your best vibes. See you there :)
