The third annual Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic will take place April 18 at Palm Park (711 E. 3rd St.). The event, which benefits the Waller Creek Conservancy, offers participants the chance to purchase loaded picnic baskets from some of Austin’s best restaurants and chefs, including Sway, Home Slice Pizza, Lucy’s Fried Chicken, Franklin BBQ and The Salt Lick. Baskets from some restaurants, including Jeffrey’s and LaV, will include drink pairings (beer will be sold on site), and Gardner and Lenoir will sell vegetarian baskets. The baskets, which sold quickly last year, serve two people and can be picked up the day of the event.

“The Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic is a preview experience of what a transformed Waller Creek will become—a place, welcome to all, where Austin’s neighbors come together to engage and enjoy its parks and natural resources,” Waller Creek CEO Peter Mullan said.
