Pop Up Picnic Co.

Est. 2012
San Diego, CA



Based in San Diego, CA, Pop Up Picnic Co. offers a unique, picnic-inspired dining experience. We believe in healthy, robust lives that involve getting out and exploring the exciting world around us. The Pop Up Picnic is a way to explore our city with innovative picnic experiences that include locally sourced food, drinks and all the creature comforts that make a great picnic possible. We whole-heartedly believe San Diego is America's Finest City and we want to show you with the Pop Up Picnic Experience.  



Pop Up Picnic was first created in 2012 as an answer to how to celebrate Valentine's Day. Coming from the wedding events industry, owner, Lauren Kimmons, has always had a fondness for the aesthetic and a penchant for unique experiences. Pop Up Picnic has ridden a creative wave through several variations in the years since and thanks to a handful of loyal customers, The Pop Up Picnic Company enters a new phase with the Summer 2018 relaunch.

Much of the inspiration for Pop Up Picnic comes from the city of San Diego itself. It's natural beauty, temperate climate and varied geography inspire people to explore and get lost (without the hassle of leaving the city.) This idea of exploring is essential to what make Pop Up Picnic so great: we encourage exploration in the world, in our lives, on our plates and always with a friend. Pop Up Picnic: explore together.
