Pop up Picnic is a fun event that runs through to the end of August, featuring 8 Robson Street restaurants.  The popular restaurants  have put together quick, tasty and well priced menu options for people to chose from.  Every picnic lunch includes a free Robson tumbler (while supplies last)  and  a number of great spots to dine outside.

“Pop-Up Picnic embraces the best aspects of summer: fresh air, sun, relaxation, and indulging in great food and people watching,” says Teri Smith, Executive Director of the Robson Street Business Association.
