Picnic in Bailey Park

Picnic Like a Pro

Where to go, what to eat, and how to upgrade your picnic game in and around Winston-Salem!

Picnic like a pro with our tips on the best places and best food to take with you, or upgrade and hire someone to make your experience truly memorable!

Where to Picnic

  • The Lawn in front of�Reynolda House�- with a spacious lawn and easy parking, this is as easy as it gets (on the weekends, park in Reynolda Village and walk up the road)
  • Old Salem�Square�- stake out a spot in quaint Salem Square, then stroll the streets
  • Quarry Park�- picnic in the meadow after taking in the beautiful Winston skyline from the overlook
  • Bailey Park – for an urban feel, spread out on the grass at Bailey Park (and get some Lill Dipper ice cream after!)
  • Tanglewood Park�- there are so many choices for the perfect spot, but we like the picnic tables near Mallard Lake for shade or any of the grassy knolls for sun�
  • West Salem Public House�- for the beer aficionado, go to the Pub, where picnics are encouraged
  • A Local Vineyard�-�Raffaldini,�Medaloni, and�Divine Llama�all allow outside picnics (but not outside alcohol)

What to Eat

Pack a cooler with homemade goodies, or go the easy route and pick up prepared food!

  • Buie�s Market�- head to their charcuterie section and grab some cheese, cured meat, and crackers, then throw in some fruit + veggies to round out the meal – don�t forget beer or wine!
  • The Carving Board– you can�t go wrong with any order from the Carving Board! Best bet: order sandwiches and a few side salads to share
  • The Board Babe�- get a prepared to-go charcuterie picnic box for an easy all-in-one option
  • Bobby Boy Bakery – while they are best known for their desserts, they also offer amazing lunchtime specials

Upgrade the Experience

There are a couple of new local enterprises that will set up and cater your picnic for you! If you�re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, try one of these companies that will make it easy to picnic like a pro:

  • Keeley Nicole Events – With the dreamiest set-ups (see the picture above!), this would be perfect for a date night!
  • Lavander Picnic – They offer 3 packages with specific menus for up to 4 guests – how fun for an intimate birthday!
