The Picnic Area at Harbor Park is a great venue to hold your annual company picnic, reward important clients and employees or entertain family and friends. Perfect for groups big and small, the Picnic Area is available for pre-game and in-game picnics for groups of 50 to 500.
The Picnic Area was completely renovated prior to the 2018 season. The area features a covered space with new picnic tables, high-top tables and the same outstanding view of the action. With a picnic, your group's name will appear on the scoreboard throughout the game, and your name will be heard on the Tides game broadcast on ESPN Radio 94.1.
There are two seatings for the Picnic Area. The Pre-Game Picnics begin 1 1/2 hours prior to game time and end right as the game begins. In-Game Picnics begin 15 minutes after the scheduled game time and run for 1 1/2 hours. If your group size is 350 people, you will have the picnic area exclusively for one of the seatings. Otherwise, due to high demand, several groups will enjoy picnics during each seating.
Seating is "open-seating", and there are no designated areas for individual groups. Only two different menu choices are allowed during a picnic, so there is a chance your menu may be based on another group's menu selection. For more information on reserving a picnic, please contact the Tides Group Sales Department at 757-622-2222 Ext. 107 or 171.
