Member Night: Picnic by the Bay

It's that time of year again—Picnic by the Bay is back! Bring your own picnic favorites or reserve one of our delicious picnic dinners to pick up when you arrive. Then spread out your blanket on our ocean-front decks or in front of one of our world-class exhibits, relax and enjoy your meal. Don't miss our exciting programs during the night, including a special Kelp Forest Dive show and cornhole on the back deck!
