Charm City Picnic Co. does not provide or serve alcohol. To maintain and ensure a safe, family-oriented outdoor recreation experience for all park visitors, the Maryland Park Service regulates the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages in State Parks. This policy was adopted in the interest of all park patrons, to maintain the family atmosphere of State Parks, while still allowing for the appropriate consumption of alcoholic beverages under a special permit process.
What happens if inclement weather is projected? What if I need to reschedule or cancel?
We always ask that you check the forecast before you select a date if you are able to do so. If bad weather occurs, we will reschedule your picnic for another time! You will have a full year from original date to re-book your picnic. In a non-weather related rescheduling, we ask you reschedule within 72 hours of your first chosen date, otherwise the deposit is non-refundable.
What if an additional guest shows up to my picnic that I didn’t pay for?
No big deal! Your guest may not have a place to sit. We always recommend booking your picnic to accommodate all expected guests, but totally get that friends and family may want to stop by!
Do I have to choose from the parks listed on this website?
Absolutely not, those are just a few of our favorites. Just let us know where you want to be (Your backyard? Local park?) and we will accommodate you. If you are outside the Baltimore area, there may be an additional travel fee.
Can I take anything home?
All items belong to CCP and should be left as you found it. All purchased food or flowers are yours to bring with you. CCP has the right to charge for any missing or damaged products.
How much notice does CCP need to prepare my picnic?
We require a 5-day notice to get your picnic prepared and appreciate as much notice as possible, however we will always try to make it work if you reach out after that time frame.
Can we bring and drink alcohol at our picnic?
Please see Maryland State Park's rules & regulations around their alcohol policy.
Does Charm City Picnic Co. provide the alcohol?
Unfortunately, due to restrictions we cannot sell alcohol to you.
Can we bring pets?
If the location or state park allows pets, your furry friend is more than welcome to tag along! Please make sure to clean up after them and let us know if any accidents occur. It happens - we're pet lovers too!
Can my Picnic be inside?
All of out packages can be managed in an indoor setting, just ask!
What if I damage the setup?
We are happy to clean up after you, that’s part of our service, but if there is irreparable damage to our equipment, the contact for the picnic will be notified and the credit card on file will be charged.
Can I bring my own food?
Absolutely! You do not need to use our add-on services if you do not wish, but you may be missing out on some pretty sweet treats!
** Please note your date is booking is not finalized until the agreement and waiver has been signed! **
