2019 Community Picnic and Market

A weekend where we all Belong: One community, two events!

At Miriam’s Kitchen we believe in Belonging – that’s why we’re changing and innovating our event this year.

Purchase a ticket and join our Miriam’s Kitchen Guests, partners, and supporters for our annual Community Picnic on Friday, September 20th at Yards Park. This will be a fun day of food, games and conversation!

The celebration continues on Sunday, September 22nd as we support and celebrate our incredible community at our Miriam’s Kitchen Market with FRESH FARM. Join us at Canal Park to empower our Guests through social enterprise and small business. Economic Empowerment Partners will host booths where our Guests will begin their own small businesses by selling their own artwork, jewelry and other items.
