FAQ

HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU NEED TO CREATE A PICNIC?


We require at least 48 hours notice so we can provide the best picnic experience for you. However, we do get fully booked - especially on weekends. The more notice you can give, the better!




HOW DO I BOOK A PICNIC?


Fill out our booking form! To secure a date and booking agreement, a 50% non-refundable retainer is required on all bookings. The remaining balance is due 48 hours before your event date. We happily accept payment through PayPal.

WHAT ARE THE FOOD OPTIONS?


We do not order, provide, or deliver food. However, we work with some amazing local, women owned vendor partners for cheese & charcuterie and grazing boards. All of our partners offer delivery to our picnics, just let them know you're booking with us! Otherwise, you are free to bring your own food and beverages! @GrazeWithJenna @LaCharcuterieCherie




CAN WE LEAVE THE PICNIC WHENEVER WE WANT?


If you would like to leave earlier than the arranged 3 hour picnic time, please text or call us at least 30 minutes prior. You are responsible for all items until we are able to return to the location.




HOW DO I SELECT A LOCATION?


We can accomodate both outdoor and indoor picnic locations! While we will do our best to accommodate your location request, we ask that locations are 50 yards from vehicle access. Please keep in mind when picking a location if you will need ADA accessibility for members of your group. Two of our preferred pics are Turtle Creek Park and Griggs Park, both located in Uptown Dallas. We are happy to deliver picnics anywhere within the Dallas/Fort Worth area.




WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?


If you need to reschedule your picnic due to weather or other unforseen circumstances, we can apply your funds to another date within the calendar year. We do require 24 hours notice upon rescheduling due to weather. In a non-weather related rescheduling, you must reschedule for a new date within 72 hours of your picnic, otherwise a penalty fee of $150 must be paid. If you need to cancel entirely, Uptown Picnic Company reserves the right to retain half of the amount paid at checkout. If you book a picnic, and do not show up, Uptown Picnic Co. reserves the right to retain the entire amount paid at checkout.




WHAT IF I BREAK SOMETHING?


We are happy to clean up after you, that’s part of our service! However, if there is irreparable damage to our equipment, then an additional fee will apply.




IS ALCOHOL ALLOWED?


It is the responsibility of the client to check alcohol laws of any venue or public space being used for one of our picnics. We do not offer alcoholic beverages and are not held responsible for those who bring those items to their picnics.




CAN I BRING MY DOG?


Yes! We are dog friendly. We even have a Furry Friend package - it includes a dog water bowlm and leash stake.




WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER?


Texas weather can be crazy. That said, we can always move your picnic to an indoor location! If not, we are happy to reschedule you for another date within the calendar year at no additional cost.
